General

  • Mission:
  • The Berryessa Music Boosters, Inc. is a fund raising organization supporting the music programs in the Berryessa Union School District.

  • Overview:
  • I am a new teacher teaching in the Berryessa Union School District seeking funding for instrument maintenance and classroom supplies. The school district does not allocate any funds for the music programs to use. As a result, there is a huge difference in the quality of education between students according to what they can provide. The schools with a more affluent population, such as Ruskin Elementary, have parents who will buy course books and donate money for quality instruments. The schools with poorer working class families, such as Toyon or Summerdale, do not have books and instruments that in dire need of maintenance.

  • History:
  • The Berryessa Music Boosters, Inc. was formed in 1991 as a fund raising organization supporting the music program in the Berryessa Union School District. The Berryessa Union School District consists of thirteen schools both elementary and middle schools. Members are volunteers and staff of the Berryessa Union School District. This organization is headed up by Jim Bannister, President and Zoa Fitch, Treasurer, as well as the many other volunteers that help run various fund raising events. All are dedicated to providing funds needed to continue the fine musical traditions established in this school district. This is accomplished by accepting donations from the parents and/or guardians of all interested and enrolled music students in addition to other fund raising efforts.

    For more than 18 years the Berryessa Music Boosters, Inc has enabled the Berryessa Union School District to maintain its outstanding Music programs. Because of the demands of our middle school programs, we are now asking you to assist the Berryessa Union School District to upgrade and replace instruments, purchase risers for our choirs, and help purchase necessary supplies such as sheet music which is beyond the school district's financial means.
