Throughout the school year, MVHSIMBA holds various fundraisers to benefit the entire program or a specific group need. It is important that all students and their families participate in fundraising activities to help keep our Program Donations as low as possible. Many of our fundraising opportunities can be done at NO EXTRA COST to you!
ShopWithScrip/RaiseRight: Buy gift cards (physical cards and e-cards) from your favorite brands and a portion goes back to MVHSIMBA. Download the RaiseRight app on your phone to easily browse over 750 restaurants, stores, online shopping sites, and more that participate. Link a bank account or credit card in the app and purchase e-cards almost instantly for a small fee, or place the order and pay the coordinator directly with cash or check.

Face Mask Fundraiser: Through 11/15/2020!!! Everyone needs a fun face mask these days! CapturingCouture.com will give MVHSIMBA 50% back (plus a 10% discount) on each face mask ordered with the code MVHSIMBA20. Adult and kid sizes available, and there are more than 60 designs to choose from! Click here for details and a QR code to go directly to the website.
MVHS Field Show Tournament (Home Comp): This is the biggest fundraiser for the ENTIRE program. We need support from all families, both those in Marching Band & Color Guard as well as families in other programs. Many of the volunteer needs are best served by the students (and their families) that are not performing that day.
Textile Drives: We collect discarded textiles (clothing, drapery, bedding, shoes, purses, etc) for which we receive a set amount per pound. This fundraiser may occur several times a year and it is a great way to not only support the Instrumental Music program, but a great way to clean out your closet! Text the Booster President at 949-981-5262 to arrange a pickup.
AmazonSmile: A percentage of eligible purchases made through AmazonSmile are donated to the Instrumental Music program at NO EXTRA COST TO YOU! To register, visit AmazonSmile and select Mission Viejo High School Instrumental Music Boosters Association as your charitable organization. Then do all of your normal Amazon shopping through the AmazonSmile site.
Ralphs Community Giving Program: A percentage of your grocery purchases are donated to the Instrumental Music program at NO EXTRA COST TO YOU! It is as simple as registering your Reward Card and selecting Mission Viejo h.s. instr. music (Account #JK102) as the program to which you wish to donate. Click here to sign up. NOTE: The Ralph’s Giving Program requires you to renew your selection every September 1st.
Legends Fundraiser: Parents have the opportunity to work at 5 Point Amphitheater in Irvine selling concessions during their summer and fall concerts. Money earned from there goes directly to the entire program. NOTE: This program is currently on hold for the 2020 season.
Company Matching: Many companies will match your charitable donation to MVHSIMBA, some up to 100%! Please check with your company to see if they participate in a matching program. This is a FREE way for you to double your donation!
Grants: There are many organizations that will provide grants to music programs. We need help identifying these organizations and writing grant proposals to obtain funding. These proposals range from very simple to more complex. Please contact the Ways & Means Manager if you are interested in learning more, or if you have information on potential grants.
