Donation Schedule


Dear Band Students and Families,

Welcome to the 2015-16 band year. We would like to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves and give you the band donation schedule for this year. We are Laurie Duong, Treasurer, and Gita Baliga-Savel, Financial Secretary, of the Santa Teresa Music & Arts Association (STMAA).

In order to cover the expenses necessary to provide your student with an outstanding band experience, we have set a band donation schedule so that STMAA can pay staff, fees, and transportation in a timely manner. More details on how band donations are used will be given at the August Parent Meeting. Although band donations may be paid at any time before the due date, we have outlined the following suggested timeline: 

Marching Band

$850.00 (divided into 3 donations):
$300 due Aug. 5, 2015
$300 due Sept. 1, 2015
$250 due Oct. 1, 2015

Color Guard

$900 (divided into 3 donations)

       $300 due Aug. 5, 2015
$300 due Sept. 1, 2015
$300 due Oct. 1, 2015

Concert Band/Symphonic Band/Wind Ensemble

$125.00 total due Nov. 1, 2015


$200.00 total due January 31, 2016

Please keep in mind that if we do not have money in the STMAA account to cover student expenses, the program will need to be modified and your student will not have the full band experience. There are many opportunities to fundraise in order to pay band accounts; please check the STMAA web site http://600building.com/ and watch for emails from our fundraising coordinator for more information. Band statements will be emailed out on a monthly basis; please contact me with any questions regarding your account or statement.

There are multiple ways to submit your student’s financial obligation. You can drop a payment in the lock box in the band room, or you can mail it to STMAA, P.O. Box 23761, San Jose, CA, 95123.  Payments can also be made via credit or debit on the Charms website.

If you have any questions, please contact Gita at Financialsecretary@600building.com.
