    IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM BOOSTERS PRESIDENT GREG ANDERSON


    MHS Boosters’ Club
    Temporarily Loses Tax Exempt Status

    The Miramonte High School Boosters’ Club Board of Directors wants to inform members and friends of the club about some important news regarding the tax status of the organization.  

    The not-for-profit organization has temporarily lost its IRS 501(c)(3) tax status, which means donations made during a certain period of time are not tax deductable for those individuals or corporations making such donations. The Boosters’ board sincerely apologizes for this unfortunate circumstance and honest mistake, for which it can explain.

    • What does this mean? It means any donation to, or purchase from, the club after November 15, 2013 is not tax deductable until further notice.

     

    • When will the status be reinstated? The board is in the process of re-applying for tax-exempt status, which is practically certain but may take several months. When reinstated, we understand that donations made to the organization after November 15, 2013 may very likely recapture tax exempt status retroactively. However, we urge you to consult your personal tax advisor for confirmation on this particular issue.

    • How did this happen? The club failed to file tax returns for three years. The current officers were unaware of this responsibility due to a communication breakdown between transitioning administrations.

     

    • Didn’t the IRS notify the club of delinquency?  The IRS tried to, but all correspondence between the tax agency and the club was being sent to an – until recently – unknown mail slot physically at the high school.

     

    • Why was important IRS mail sent to an unknown mail slot? Honest answer:  We’re not certain. The Boosters’ club pays for its own off-site mailing address to a non-Acalanes District post office box. Because that has been the official mail box of the club for as long as any current member of the board can recall, there was no reason to believe there was a second, unknown mail slot elsewhere.

     

    • What’s next?  The board and its officers are working diligently to re-apply for tax exempt status, while filing back-tax documents that are owed to the IRS, which is part of the process. Once the board is notified of re-instatement, it will inform parents and other benefactors when they can again claim donations to the organization as deductions.

     

    • How will this affect this year’s Crab Feed? While money or goods donated to the event cannot be deducted by donors at this time (there is a strong possibility they will be deductible retroactively), we sincerely hope many folks will still attend to support this major fund raiser, which fuels the club’s mission to help finance and support MHS athletics and activities.

    Again, the board apologizes for this mistake but is working feverishly to rectify the problem. We understand that some people may have questions and/or concerns about the situation, and we urge you to contact me at andfive@comcast.net, and I will do my best to answer your queries.

    Thank you and regards,

    Greg Anderson

    President, Miramonte H.S. Boosters’ Club

    Why Become a Boosters Member?

    Simply put, if you are the parent of a student-athlete at MHS, you need to be a member of the Miramonte Boosters Club.

    At Miramonte, we are fortunate to have a long and proud tradition of high caliber athletics to complement our excellent academics. Our sports teams are always competitive and have brought many a championship to our school. And our sports teams are able to compete at such a high level in part due to the funding provided by the Miramonte Boosters. The Boosters provide funding to every sport at Miramonte - without that funding, the school would not be able to offer so many athletic options for our kids.

    Our student athletes make up more than 75% of the student body...that's the good news. Now for the bad news...less than 25% of Miramonte families support the Boosters. That means for every three families who have a student athlete, only one of those families helps support our sports programs. Since 60% of our funds are generated from Memberships, increasing the number of member families is crucial to our sports programs. Our objective this year is to raise awareness of the critical role that the Boosters play in Miramonte athletics and get closer to 100% participation as Booster contributors from student athlete families. Memberships start as low as $100, and all of the funds are distributed among all of the sports programs based on budgets submitted by the coaches.

    Boosters' Club relies on membership donations to add support to all the after school athletics programs at Miramonte High School, providing support the School District is unable to provide (especially in these times of shrinking funds). Through the generosity of parents and community members, Boosters is able to provide needed equipment and supplies to all sports teams, as well as underwrite a trainer and weight room supervisor. In addition, Boosters is there when big-ticket items are needed such as pole vault pits, wrestling mats, soccer goals, tennis nets, and benches for spectators, and much, much more.

    Boosters accepts matching donations.

    Donations to Boosters are tax deductible.

    Where are the Boosters Funds Spent?

    The Boosters funds the equipment needs of all Mats sports teams based on the budgets submitted by each team's coach.
