BENEFITING: Pta Oregon Congress
‘The Sounds of Jefferson’ has been reported to be ending, after its one year return, after having been previously shuttered for 20 years. We need your help NOW to not let this happen. Let’s come together and show our support for one of Portland’s most revered music programs and help build it back up to the impressive levels it achieved in the 1970’s – 90’s. We need $20,000 to keep the full program for the 2016-17 school year. Please help us save and revive The Sounds of Jefferson!
This is a program that brings so many positives to our Jefferson High School students and our Portland community. ‘The Sounds of Jefferson’ is an after school program at Jefferson to teach students music. Music of many genres. This music program is already popular with students, and has the potential to positively affect many more students as it builds back to its former level. Among many other attributes, music has a positive effect on students learning.
Funds for this campaign will go directly to the Jefferson High School PTSA and then 100% of funds will be distributed to the Jefferson Band program. A budget of $20,000 has been established that includes salaries for band teachers, equipment and other supplies. The funds will be used for keeping and expanding the band, drumline and developing the rock band.
Your contribution is to a 501(3)c and is tax deductible. We will have the names of donors prominently displayed in the Band room. And, don't forget to check out our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/The-Sounds-of-Jefferson-Revival-244254089310462/
