Working to Raise Education Performance through Instrumental Music and the Performing Arts
TIMB is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization • Tax EIN 33-0864351

“Keep Music Alive” is our largest fundraiser of the year. All donations are tax deductible, and 100% of your donation goes directly to the Northwood Instrumental Music program. Let’s avoid selling cookie dough or gift wrap and give to “Keep Music Alive” ‐ Your generous support makes it all possible!

Keep Music Alive

THANK YOU to the many generous families who have given time and money to support music! Over the years, the students of NHS have continued to benefit from the generosity of our parents and community. Donations to this program will help maintain the integrity of our outstanding program, as well as cover ongoing costs. To maintain a high-caliber program, we are fortunate to have the Timberwolves Instrumental Music Boosters (TIMB) as volunteers at our events and to help raise funds to cover the costs of instruments, instrument repairs, sheet music, festivals and offsite performances, clinics and coaching, awards programs, and more. This translates to approximately $150 per student in our program.

Your donation will help us “Keep Music Alive” at NHS!  As part of TIMB’s fundraising efforts, we are requesting a donation of $125 per musician. We appreciate ANY amount you can give. Donations made to the program may help offset or eliminate the need for other fundraising activities. Your student’s participation in the program is in no way contingent upon your donation; however, we hope to continue to maintain the level of our programs. Based on the donations received, we may have to alter or cut some activities we have had in the past. Donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law. Thank you so much for your consideration.

We offer “Thank You” incentives for various levels of giving. TIMB vouchers are complimentary concert tickets which have a box office value of $10 each. These vouchers can be used for any of the paid-admission instrumental concerts, excluding galas.
