About the Gilbert Fine Arts Booster Club
We are a group of Gilbert area parents and patrons who volunteer our time and resources to enhance the fine arts programs offered by the Gilbert school system. We do this in many ways, including the following:
- Communicate with fine arts teachers and staff to determine their needs and how we can best help to meet those needs.
- Help represent fine arts priorities to Gilbert school administrators and the board.
- Organize volunteers as needed to support fine arts activities. Recent examples include arranging treats for plays/musicals and coordinating volunteers for music contests.
- Solicit, receive, manage, and disburse funds to support the fine arts programs. Some examples from recent years include: $40,000 for band uniforms, $15,000 for choir robes, $1,500 - $2,500 for scholarships each year, and money for instruments, awards, snacks, pizza and other miscellaneous items.
Federal Tax-Exempt Status
On June 4, 2014 we received word from the IRS that effective January 1, 2013 we are classified as a public charity and exempt from Federal income tax under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Contributions to the Gilbert Fine Arts Boosters are deductible under section 170 of the Code.
