Presuming that the school district in questions values instrumental music, the Music4Life Governing Board has three expectations before establishing a new school district-based Music4Life Booster Club:
- A dedicated group of local community leaders (as few as three or four up to a dozen or more) willing to commit to establishing and maintaining a new school district-based Music4Life BoosterClub often comes from local Rotary, Lions, Kiwanis or similar community service clubs, though it is not necessary to be a member of any of these to be on the booster club);
- Commitment of start-up funds so we can begin repairing musical instruments as soon as they start coming in. (Our experience is that instrument donations begin as soon as we announce the new Music4Life program. Funds are deposited in the Music4Life bank account and tracked separately by our bookkeeper so your school district gets all the benefits to which it is entitled); and
- A letter of endorsement of Music4Life by the Superintendent on his/her letterhead (we’ll be glad to supply a draft letter).
Once these are in-place, the Music4Life Governing Board will decide whether to authorize the formation of a Music4Life Booster Club serving your public school district.
We look forward to working with you to assure that all your students get the full educational benefits guaranteed to them by the Washington State Constitution and open the wonderful world of instrumental music to them for the rest of their lives through Music4Life!
