Homestead High School Music Boosters is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization
So it is likely you can deduct contributions to the HHSMB from your taxes. Of course, consult your tax professional to be sure.
Microsoft, AMD, Spansion Intel may match your music volunteer hours with a monetary donation to Boosters. This may range from $10-17 dollars per hour, which adds up quickly! Over $3000 was raised last year from this type of program. Please check if YOUR company will match the volunteer hours you will be providing! The five minutes it takes to fill out the form may be worth up to $1000 to Music Boosters! Thanks!
Also, many corporations will match all or a portion of their employess monetary donations. Here is a list of some of these. If you know of any additions or errors to this list, please let me know.
Music boosters can now accept stock donations! If you are interested in donating stock, please contact Kelly Giannini. Please note that HHSMB policy is to sell the stock immediately after the transfer of ownership.
The "ink jet/cell phone" recycling for dollars program now accepts: cell phones, ink jet cartridges, laptop/notebook computers (you can remove the hard drive if you want), ipods, and digital cameras. This is a year long effort. Please place all items in the blue bin outside of Mr. Burn's office. We do NOT accept toner or laser cartridges due to size and lack of return.

All music families are strongly encouraged to sign up for eScrip (the Music Booster's Group I.D. number is 137634941).
It takes only a very few minutes of your time to register, and after that, with no effort on your part, the participating merchants start sending money to Music Boosters. You don't have to remember to show a card or do anything at all. You don't even have to be aware which merchants are participating, unless you want to go out of your way to patronize them. Sixty percent of the money will go directly to your student's Scrip account, where it will be available for you to pay HHS music program expenses.
After you register online, please do not forget to notify Scrip coordinators at scrip@homestead_music.org that you have registered.
