Pride of Sunrise Truck Fundraiser:

Wouldn’t it be AMAZING to have this truck following the buses at every away football game and band competition for many years to come!!! We need your help to make it happen. Help us raise $10,000 so we can purchase a used U-Haul truck, brand it with the SMHS Mustangs logo and customize the interior to make it easier to move the band equipment.

This project was initiated by Mark Crowley, one of our own band members.  He is working towards being an Eagle Scout, the highest rank in Boy Scouts. This is Mark’s Eagle Scout project.

Donations to SMHS Bandwagon for this project are tax deductible. Any amount would be appreciated. For donations of $250 or more, the donors name will be displayed on the back of the truck. Help us reach our goal.  Please donate and spread the word to friends, relatives, and neighbors.  Thanks for your support.

Make checks payable to SMHS Bandwagon (put Truck Fundraiser in the memo) or use your credit/debit card to make a donation online.

Arizona Tax Credit

If you pay taxes in Arizona you’re able to make a donation to the Sunrise Mountain High School Band program resulting in a dollar for dollar reduction in your taxes.  Imagine telling the government how to spend the money it collects.  That’s exactly what this program allows you to do.

Single or Head of Household can contribute up to $200 per year ($400 for Married Filing Jointly).  This is a tax credit that directly reduces the amount of tax you owe. If you’re getting a refund it will increase your refund by the amount of the contribution.
How does it work?

  1. Make a donation to the band online through the school district secure web site
  2. For the school choose Sunrise Mountain High School
  3. For the program choose Band
  4. The district receives the money and earmarks is exclusively for our band use
  5. Next year file form 301 and 322 with your Arizona tax return
  6. Your Arizona state taxes are reduced by the amount of the contribution

A tax credit is available to all Arizona taxpayers, regardless if they have children in school or not. Anyone who resides or owns property and can file taxes in the state of Arizona can make a tax credit contribution.  So grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. can be encouraged to make a donation.  Our goal is to have parents of all band students participating in this program.
Here is the letter that our band director, Mr. Vail, emailed to all band parents at the beginning of the year.
