NIMB-Northgate Instrumental Music Boosters

Northgate's instrumental music program is one of the most rigorous and best-regarded music programs in Northern California. However, our school district provides only about $1600 per year to support the entire instrumental music program. NIMB is a nonprofit organization that provides financial and logistical support to enhance the music program for our students.

Your tax-deductible group donations to NIMB make up more than half of our annual budget, with additional monies raised by NIMB volunteers through fundraisers, grants, corporate matching, and outside donations. Your NIMB contributions support musical instrument purchase and repair, festival entry fees and transportation, coaches and clinicians, sheet music purchase, insurance, website, and much more! Donations to NIMB benefit more than 160 students in all seven of our groups: Concert Band, Symphonic Winds, Orchestra, Jazz Band I, Jazz Band II, Jazz Combo, and Marching Band/Drum Line/Auxiliary.

Please support Northgate instrumental music -- we count on every NIMB family to support Northgate's top-level music program! The suggested group donations are calculated based on budgeted expenditures for each group during the school year. You can make donations easily by clicking on the "donate" button at the website below.
