Matching Donation Opportunity

To Inspire Your Generosity...Double Your Awesome!

It may sound cliche, but it really does take a village…and we are fortunate to live, work and go to school in an AWESOME village! The Mattawan Band Program, comprised of 500+ students in grades 6-12, relies on the generosity and dedication of parents, alumni, and community members to provide an outstanding music education program through Mattawan Consolidated School. While the school district provides the basics for this program, the rest of the financial burden lies with the Band Booster organization, their fundraising endeavors, and the yearly band participation fee.

The cost of providing this outstanding instrumental opportunity to our students increases each year and as the program grows. Equipment repair, sheet music/copyright costs, accessories, uniform replacement, cleaning and maintenance, auxiliary staffing, meals and much more take a toll on our yearly budget. This year, less than 45% of families have contributed to yearly band fees requiring us to stretch our already tight budget to the maximum..

Through the generosity of one our community members, we have been given the opportunity to turn $5,000 into $10,000! They have challenged band families, grandparents, alumni, and community members to give to the Mattawan Band Program before 2017 is over. This generous donor has agreed to match, dollar for dollar, any donation made between now and December 31, up to $5,000. As an added bonus, the Mattawan Band Boosters is 501(c)3 organization and every donation you make is tax deductible. Please consider taking this opportunity to pay your band fee if you haven’t yet, doubling your impact, making a donation to a worthy cause, and receive year-end tax benefits with your donation today!

Also, please feel free to share this email with friends, family and community members that would like to help us reach our $5,000 goal by December 31, 2017!

As always…thank you for all you do to help make the music happen!
Elise M. Ripmaster, President
