Help Maintain the Excellence of Whitman’s Music Program

The Whitman music faculty have built one of the finest—if not the finest—high school music programs in the region. Our instrumental and choral groups consistently receive top scores in local and national competitions, and our students thrive through their music education and being part of this community.

For years, families have generously supported this top-quality program by contributing to the Whitman Music Boosters, helping to cover essential expenses such as

  • sheet music
  • piano accompanists for some choral ensembles
  • instruments
  • instrument tuning, maintenance, and repair
  • stipends for guest clinicians
  • annual CD recordings
  • the spring arts festival and farewell concerts
  • concert attire and accessories, and
  • scholarships for students unable to participate without assistance.

We need your help in continuing this critical tradition and urge you to support the Whitman Music Boosters with your tax-deductible dues of $100 per student. Of course, we welcome and greatly appreciate any other or any additional amount you are able to donate. Our goal is 100-percent participation, regardless of the size of the contribution. This is especially vital given that our music classes are no longer able to collect a school lab fee and rely solely on booster donations to fund all program costs. 

To pay your dues and/or other tax-deductible donation to the Music Boosters (preferably by Sept. 15 to help us better plan the many programs that depend on your donation), you have two options:

Booster dues payment buttonOnline, by credit or debit card at www.pay4schoolstuff.com.
