Our program is entirely self-funded through donations by parents, friends, and family as well as through fundraising opportunities we set up in and around the community. Because we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, your generous donations are also tax-deductible!
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and operate our program. This includes paying our coaches, purchasing music, creating shows, repairing instruments, and so much more!
For every season (fall and winter/spring), we ask each family to make a specific donation per student that is in the program according to what has been budgeted. For the 2022 Fall Marching Season each student is asked to donate $600. Winter and Spring donations will be posted here.
Thank you for your support of the Tiger Regiment!
Payment Options for All Donations
PLEASE NOTE: For any electronic payment, please be sure to note who your student is and what the payment is for, ex. Family Donation, Color Guard, Jazz, etc. This ensures your donation gets applied correctly. Thank you!
Zelle allows you to transfer funds directly from within your online banking account. If you’re unsure whether your bank offers this, check this link on the Zelle website https://www.zellepay.com/get-started
Once you’re ready to set this up in your online banking account, use the following information to connect to the Tiger Regiment:
Name: Valencia Instrumental Parents
As of August 2022, we are no longer offering PayPal an an option for donations and other payments. PayPal changed their terms to no longer allow “sending to a friend” for business accounts and therefore, the Tiger Regiment is being charged for every transaction.
Please email the Treasurer at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or concerns. We apologize for the inconvenience and invite you to try the other electronic payment options.
Please make your donation check payable to Valencia Instrumental Parents and mail to:
Valencia Instrumental Parents
PO Box 404
Placentia, CA 92871-0404
Be sure to include your student’s name in the Memo section of your check so that it gets applied to your donation account.
For any check or cash payments, you can also place them in the “Black Box” located within Mr. King’s office. When submitting payments this way, please be sure to indicate on the envelope and/or check the name of the student this applies to (unless it’s a general donation to the program) and the reason for the donation (family donation, a specific event, etc.).
Important Things to Note
We encourage you to also make use of the Adopt-a-Tiger program where you can send a personalized letter to people you know asking them to support the program. Those donations will go directly into your student’s donation account. Download the form here and send as many as you can!
Payments for your family donation can be made all at once or in payments over the course of the season. Note however that because of the many up-front expenses necessary to run the program, it’s important that donations are made sooner than later so we can cover those expenses. Donations can be made in any one of the following ways listed below.
