“Your Orchestra” Campaign - Supporting your Linn-Mar students and enhancing the arts within our greater community!

The Linn-Mar “Your Orchestra” Campaign is our annual fundraiser which directly benefits our 550 orchestra students in 5th-12th grade. Every gift will make an important and immediate difference for our orchestras.


Our campaign goal of $10,000 * will help bring in inspiring guest artists, fund exciting special events, and supply our students with the necessary instruments, literature, and accessories to help them learn and grow. Your support will directly benefit every student throughout the Linn-Mar Orchestra Program
*Online goal indicates $6,500 as many families write checks instead of online giving.

Important Notes:

The first annual Linn-Mar Orchestra department "Your Orchestra" campaign in 2017 was a huge success! We listened to your suggestions and elimated two product fundraisers and we exceeded our fundraising goals with your generous help! Every size gift helps support orchestra students in their pursuit of musical excellence. Please share this with grandparents and extended family who may wish to help support your musician.

The Linn-Mar School Foundation is a fiscal agent for the “Your Orchestra” Campaign online donations. All gifts will benefit the Linn-Mar Orchestra Program. Employee matching contribution forms must indicate the Linn-Mar School Foundation as the organization receiving the funds for this campaign.

*“Your Orchestra” Campaign fundraising overall goal is $10,000.00. Online goal indicates $6,500.00 as many of our families write checks instead of donating online. If you would prefer to write a check instead of an online contribution please turn your donation into your student’s orchestra director. Please make checks out to Linn-Mar School Foundation with “Your Orchestra” campaign in memo.
