To offer a high quality program, the Mission Viejo High School Instrumental Music Booster Association depends very heavily on financial support from all our music families. The only things provided to the music program by the school district are the music classroom and the director and assistant director salaries. With a yearly budget that averages around $250,000 per year, the music booster organization funds everything else, including the salaries of numerous professional coaches who work with all students, purchase of show designs and choreography, purchase and maintenance of instruments, equipment, and uniforms, and fees and transportation for local and regional competitions.

District Policy on Booster Organizations
The Saddleback Valley Unified School District is very proud of the extensive co-curricular programs offered at the comprehensive high schools. Through state funding, the District provides financial support for these programs, which may include stipends for one or more coach/advisor for each program, superb facilities, and general maintenance of the facilities. However, costs exceed limited state allocations, thus necessitating booster club support and requests for contributions from participants. Participation in the Mission Viejo High School Instrumental Music Boosters Organization is strictly voluntary, and no student will be denied the opportunity to participate in a SVUSD co-curricular activity because of a parent or guardian’s failure to participate in fundraising activities, failure to devote time or resources to the booster club, or failure to purchase uniforms, or other accessories or equipment. Parents or students who do not participate will not be publicly identified. In an effort to provide a comprehensive program for students at all levels, the Mission Viejo Music Boosters is requesting additional contributions, listed above. If additional funds to augment the program are not raised in the amount noted above, the school may find it necessary to scale back the program. We are strongly encouraging all parents to contribute to the program. Remember, your contributions may be tax deductible. Please consult with your accountant or tax advisor for specifics. Additionally, parents and students may be asked to participate in fundraising activities throughout the year in an effort to provide even greater financial support for the program. Participation is highly encouraged. However, lack of participation in these fundraising activities by a parent or guardian will not affect their student’s ability to participate.
