Support CVIM through Fundraising

Dine Out Nights

CVIM schedules monthly Dine Out fundraisers, where local restaurants will contribute a portion of the evening’s receipts back to directly support Instrumental Music at CV.

Check the Instrumental Music Google Calendar of events for scheduled Dine Outs, watch for those Dine Out flyers, join us and dine with CVIM, and help us raise funds for our amazing program!



























The Crescenta Valley Instrumental Music Foundation (CVIM) is an IRS Section 501 (c)(3) tax-exempt, non-profit charitable organization that provides direct financial and volunteer support to the Instrumental Music Program at Crescenta Valley High School.

CVIM provides this support to enhance and further the educational goals of all Instrumental Music Program classes and groups, including:  Symphony Orchestra, Marching Band / Drum Line / Color Guard, Concert Band, Jazz Band, String Orchestra, and Wind Ensemble.

GUSD and CVHS contributes very little to offset the numerous expenses that our program incurs annually.  The Instrumental Music Department relies heavily on the generous voluntary financial contributions of music families and the local community to pay these expenses so that the high standards of our program can be maintained.

Please consider making a monetary contribution to our support our amazing Instrumental Music Program.  All contributions to CVIM are voluntary and are fully tax-deductible.

Please click the link below for the contribution form.  Thank you for your continued support!

There are MANY stores where you can instantly purchase and redeem gift cards through Benefit: Vons, Amazon, American Airlines, Target, Walmart, Best Buy, Burger King, and California Pizza Kitchen to name just a few.  The percentage donated is always greater if you pay for the gift card from your checking account but generally something is donated even if you pay with your credit card.  Vons donates only if you purchase the gift card by paying with your checking account. Vons prefers that you print out your gift card at home and take it to the store  to keep their check-out lines moving.
