President’s Update on Individual Fundraisers

The executive board voted unanimously AGAINST individual fundraisers.

Research reveals non-profit organizations who engage in activities to award benefits to  individuals or families may be subject to significant fines, and may be stripped of their 501 (c)(3) status.  Mason Band Boosters non-profit status is vital to supporting  a nationally recognized program of excellence.  Therefore, the negative implications were too great to pursue.  The board fully understands the importance of supporting families which is why a scholarship application was introduced, and we will continue to review opportunities to fundraise for the greater good of the organization as a whole.

 

Here is one article for your review, with many more available online
