Your Financial Support is Critical to our long-term Success!
How does my donation help?
Sistema Tulsa depends upon contributions from individual and foundation donors to help deliver the staff, teaching artists, and instruments that help us achieve our mission. Our program is designed to provide opportunities in music education that can positively influence the lives of children and their families. Many musical supplies like rosin, reeds, and valve oil cost less than $5 and your financial donations of any size help us to further our mission. Your support is needed to grow and sustain this ambitious program.
How is my donation documented?
Sistema Tulsa is a program under the umbrella of the Boston Avenue United Methodist Church, a 501(c) (3) organization. Funds donated to Sistema Tulsa are held in an account for the exclusive use of the program. All monetary donations receive a tax-deductible receipt from BAUMC in time for IRS reporting purposes. Donations made online receive an instant receipt from our partner, Network for Good. Instrument donations receive a letter of acknowledgement. Our Program Director is available to answer any questions or to discuss the specifics of a gift at 918.699.0150.
What kind of donations do you accept?
Unrestricted gifts allow Sistema Tulsa the flexibility to use the funds where there is greatest need. These donations allow the program to take advantage of critical programmatic needs—purchasing a new piece for the orchestra’s repertoire or meeting equipment or instrument maintenance needs that might arise. This fund helps ensure that our children have the optimal educational environment in which to succeed. Donations in any amount are greatly appreciated. Please give at the level that is meaningful to you.
These gifts can be tailored to your funding interest. You may choose to help fund the purchase of new instruments, the expansion of our research and evaluation plan, daily transportation or food costs, college internship program, or consider establishing an endowment with naming rights to fund key staff leadership positions over time.
We accept donations of gently used musical instruments. We are currently looking for band instruments including flutes, clarinets, trumpets, trombones, and alto saxophones.
Thank you for your support!
