FOM Community Sponsor Form

Become a Community Sponsor

Dear Business /Community Organization, 

We invite you to become a sponsor of Niskayuna Friends of Music, a non-profit volunteer organization supporting music education and performance in Niskayuna schools.  Music education improves a child’s educational development, creativity, and self-esteem. Recognizing this, our school district provides a comprehensive music curriculum and performance opportunities in elementary, middle,  and high school; resulting in awards at the state and even national level! Our talented music instructors also encourage community connections, through performances at senior centers, and many town and community events throughout the year.   We rely on our business and community sponsorships, fundraising events, and membership dues to support our music program.

Some of the annual activities your gift will fund include:

  • 25 music concerts, featuring students at the elementary, middle and high school levels 
  • District-wide orchestra, band and choir festivals at Proctors Theatre.
  • Mini-grants for music education teachers for program enrichment.
  • Student scholarships for summer music instruction and college study.
  • Support for students with financial need.

We hope that your organization will seriously consider becoming a sponsor this year!  A majority of Niskayuna students participate in one (or more) of our many music ensembles, so our programs, publications, and website have an extensive reach in our community.
