The District Pays Only 

A Fraction of the Cost 

Of the CVMS Music Program

The SDUHSD District funds only a portion of the program, primarily providing The Music Director's salary and the music program's facilities. 


  • Your generous donations to CVMS Music Boosters supports every music student at CVMS. Examples include 

    • paying professional musicians and experienced coaches to provide individualized instruction for students during class time

    • purchasing instruments for use by students who cannot afford an instrument

    • fees for participation in and transportation to festivals and competitions

    • sheet music and other supplies

    • deferred maintenance needs, as our instruments are not new anymore, and the various fundraising sources help us to keep excellent equipment in students' hands

  • If you cannot attend a performance, you can donate through this link to support our wonderful guest artists, instrument repair and purchasing, and the cost of buying music for performances.

Administrative Overhead: 


Since CVMS Music Boosters is staffed entirely by volunteers, we maintain a very low operating overhead (less than 2% of our budget) so you can be assured that more than 98% of your contribution goes directly to benefit the children and the music program.
