Endowment Fund

Did you know the Muscatine High School Bands held its first meeting on December 10th, 1911? Today we are still promoting and supporting our musical students and the Muskie Band Boosters are proud to announce the establishment of the Band Booster Scholarship Endowment. For many years the Muskie Band Boosters have offered scholarships to graduating seniors of the Muscatine High School Band.  The Band Boosters need your help developing this fund so that we can continue to support the MHS graduates that further their education and stay involved in band or color guard at the college level. Band teaches important lessons in leadership, responsibility, goal setting, endurance, and more.  Each year MHS band students use these life lessons as they move on to college.

Contributing to the Scholarship Endowment ensures that your gift provides revenue for band scholarships FOREVER. Your gift to the Band Scholarship Endowment is never spent.  Rather, it is invested and each year the earnings are used to fund the scholarship program for future generations. When you donate to the Muscatine Band Boosters Endowment at the Community Foundation of Greater Muscatine, you’re not only helping the graduating students—you’re building a stronger community tomorrow. While that in itself is rewarding - with Endow Iowa, you’ll be eligible to receive a 25% state tax credit for each donation, in addition to any federal tax benefits you may qualify for.
