State champions 14 years in a row, these kids are motivated and inspired. They wake up before dawn on weekends, dress in business attire, and meet the bus at 6 a.m. to travel for tournaments. Your tax-deductible donation allows them the opportunity to put into practice all of their hard work. They want to go to tournaments. To make this happen they need our help.
Our Annual Expenses Exceed $80,000 and we receive NO FUNDING from APS!
That’s right – our entire budget is funded by parent and community donations. We are competing in fifteen different Speech and Debate events this year. The Jesters have won the State tournament for the past 14 consecutive years (!), and have gone on to compete at Nationals.
Our success relies heavily on donations and fundraising throughout the year. To be successful, we must practice and compete. To compete, we must attend tournaments. And tournaments are expensive. If students were to pay their actual expenses to compete, attending a tournament would be unattainable for most.
Your gift enables all students with the desire to have the chance to compete.
Your donation is tax-deductible.
The Midtown High School Forensics Booster Club, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, so your gift counts as a charitable income tax deduction if you file an itemized tax return. View The Midtown Jesters tax-exempt documentation here.
