2018 Goodwill & Shred Fundraiser Report

In May 2018, the Music Boosters hosted the Goodwill & Shred Event Fundraiser in the Tesoro High School Senior parking lot. It was a huge success!! We made over $3,000!!! 

Thank you to all families and neighbors that donated items and/or donated dollars for shredding documents. We will run the same event next year in 2019! So save your give-away items and drop them off at Tesoro for our "Goodwill" day. The more we donate, the larger the profit for our music program! In May, we filled TWO semi-trucks! Let's do that again! Do your spring cleaning, and help Tesoro Music at the same time! Click here to review a list to ensure you bring things we can accept. 

Snap Raise Campaign for Tesoro Music Program


Spring 2019 Snap Raise Campaign - February 25th thru March 25th

The Music Directors, students and our Snap Raise representative formally kicked off the Spring 2019 Snap Raise Campaign benefiting the Tesoro HS Music Program on Monday, February 25th, 2019.

Music students were encouraged to provide 20 email addresses and/or text numbers in order to spread the word about our fundraiser to families, friends, co-workers, and others that may want to donate and support this wonderful music program. 

It is vital that we encourage as many TEU & Music program students to participate and send emails as possible. This fundraiser is driven BY the students FOR the students. 

If we reach 70% student participation we get to keep the most $$$ raised. This is sooo critical for this wonderful program.

Additionally, it is important to point out that the Tesoro Music Program is funded entirely by the Tesoro Music Boosters organization which is made up of parents and family of our program students. This district provides for the director's salaries and the facilities. That's it! Nothing else!  EVERYTHING else must be sourced and paid for by the Tesoro Music Boosters. Sheet music? Instrument Coaches? Festival Fees? Large instruments like Tuba's, Bass, Cello's, audio equipment, marching band uniforms, cleaning, supplies, music stands, is all purchased and paid for by the Tesoro Music Booster organization. 

Thank you for considering and helping this program!

The first Snap Raise Campaign we launched back in the Fall of 2017 was very successful and allowed the music directors to purchase a number of much needed items. See below for a detailed report.
