Support Ridge Bands
Ways to get involved:
Producing one of Arizona’s top band and color guard programs takes more than talent and hard work – it takes the financial support of families, donors, sponsors and the entire Mountain Ridge community.
The MRHS Band Aides, Inc. is the non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that is responsible for chaperone support, show support, fundraising, and a wide variety of activities that help keep the programs running.
There are so many ways to show your support of music and arts in our public schools. Explore the options below and let’s find one that meets your needs!
Arizona Tax Credit
The Arizona Tax Credit Program allows individuals to direct up to $200/year ($400/year for joint filers) a year to the Mountain Ridge High School Band and receive a dollar-for-dollar credit on their Arizona income taxes. These funds are used to cover the extra band and color guard expenses that are not covered by the school district, such as transportation, instructional staff, music, instruments and costumes.
The Arizona Tax Credit is an ideal way to fund your student’s Fairshare obligation for the year or you may direct this to benefit any student or all students. With one $400 donation, a married couple can send up to $400 to their student’s Fairshare account and get a tax credit for the year.
Ask your friends and relatives to make a Tax Credit donation to the MRHS Band to benefit your student’s Fairshare account! Any Arizona taxpayer can take advantage of the Tax Credit Program and direct their tax dollars directly to the MRHS Band.
