We need your help!

The Carmel Valley Middle School Music Boosters, Inc. is an independent 501(c)3 organization committed to serving and assisting the CVMS music program through fundraising, promotion, and support as well as encouraging musical appreciation among CVMS students, parents and friends.

Volunteer

The Music Boosters keeps its expenses low by relying on parents who donate their time. Whether you can help for a single event, or throughout the year, your gift of time is greatly appreciated. Board members meet monthly to discuss budget and fundraising, upcoming concerts and events, volunteer opportunities and find creative ways to grow our music department. In addition to board member roles, we are always in need of chaperones for class trips and music festivals, a social media coordinator, photographers, concert and cashbox assistants, etc. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer please email Mr. Patterson or click here to complete the interest form.

 

Donate

The CVMS Music Boosters coordinate a variety of activities to help raise funds in support of the music program. However, the majority of funding comes from the generosity of parents and community members. Based on current budgetary projections and enrollment figures, it takes $250.00 to sponsor one student for the current school year. A $250 suggested annual donation for each student will help provide a strong music education and many great activities.
