Support the RMHS Instrumental Music Program

  • Want to donate?

    It doesn’t have to cost a lot to make a big difference for the Rocky Mountain High School Bands, Orchestras, and Color Guard! 

    The Idaho Education Tax Credit lets you support Rocky Mountain High School Instrumental Music with dollars you would otherwise owe in state taxes. Donations to the Foundation qualify for a 50% tax credit — a reduction in the actual tax you owe. If you itemize your taxes, a donation to the Foundation allows income tax deductions on both your state and federal returns, plus a 50% Idaho income tax credit.

    Your tax benefit is dependent on your personal income level and filing status. Please contact your tax consultant for additional information.
    Idaho individuals may take up to 50% of a gift of $1,000 (a tax credit of $500)
    Idaho married couples may take up to 50% of a gift of $2,000 (a tax credit of $1,000)
    Idaho corporations may take up to 50% of a gift of $10,000 (a tax credit of $5,000)

    From the Foundation site:

    My gift provides teachers the opportunity to implement creative and innovative learning opportunities above and beyond what state funding mandates.
    I may receive a tax deduction and other tax advantages when giving.  The Education Foundation of West Ada School District is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.  My donation will go further if my spouse or I are employed with a company that matches gifts.  Charitable gifts to the Education Foundation may be claimed as a tax deduction on both federal and state income tax returns.  In addition, Idaho taxpayers may be entitled to claim a tax credit for such donations equal to certain limits.  For married taxpayers, a 50% credit may be allowed for donations up to $2,000, resulting in a maximum credit of $1,000.

    Please consult with your tax advisor and take advantage of this money being made available by the state of Idaho, and help Rocky Mountain High School Bands, Orchestras, and Color Guard!
