The Monte Vista High School Instrumental Music (IM) program is self-funded by parent donations and fundraising by the Monte Vista Keynoters, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting Instrumental Music at MVHS. Neither the School District or the State provides funding for the IM program. This year, our program needs parent donations made through the Keynoters to cover approximately 70% of the total annual IM program budget. The remaining 30% is funded by miscellaneous IM fundraisers throughout the year.
Parent donations cover many items that are essential to maintaining an award-winning Instrumental Music program at Monte Vista High School. These include entry fees and transportation costs for competitions, instrument purchase and repair, music, uniforms, coaches and clinicians, music licenses, equipment, and facilities improvement.
Suggested parent donation amounts are based on how much it actually costs to run each IM program. For the 2020-2021 school year, we respectfully request the following donations to sustain our program.
Jazz A: $100
Jazz B: $100
Wind Ensemble: $100
*Suggested donation amount if your student participates in more than one IM class, e.g., Marching Band and Jazz A.
