Matching Discounts

Make Your Organization's Donation Go Further.

WHAT IS A Matching Discount?

Matching Discounts are offered to campers attending Marching Band Leadership & Color Guard Camp who are receiving a scholarship from an accredited organization outside of FSU. This would include school boosters, Lions Club, arts organizations, and other entities with a tax ID number.

FSU Summer Music Camps will contribute $1.00 for every $1.00 that an accredited organization awards the student to attend Marching Band Leadership & Color Guard camp, up to a maximum of $100.00.

For example: If you are attending Marching Band Leadership & Color Guard Camp, and your boosters give you $100.00, we would give you $100.00 to add to that.  If the boosters gave you $250, we would give you $100.00 because that's the max. If they gave you $50.00, we would add $50.00 to it.

The deadline to apply for a Matching Discount is June 11, 2021.


Matching Discount Guidelines:

  • This discount applies to Marching Band Leadership & Color Guard Camp only.
  • All campers must be registered and have paid the non-refundable deposit of $100.00 before the discount can be applied.  No discounts will be given to students that have not paid their deposit unless the scholarship is covering the $100.00 deposit as well.

INSTRUCTIONS For families submitting the APPLICATION:

If you are receiving a scholarship and want to apply for a Matching Discount, you need to do the following:

  1. Register for camp and pay the $100.00 non-refundable deposit.
  2. Fill out the Matching Discount Application Form (available after registration opens). 
  3. Attach a copy of a letter or other documentation verifying the scholarship
    Within the body of the letter should be the following: the amount of the award, the organization's contact information, and the campers full name and contact information.
  4. Submit the application:
    • If the organization has cut your scholarship check to us directly, you can include the scholarship check with the application form in the mail.  Scholarship checks should be made payable to Florida State University.  Mail the form and check to: FSU Summer Music Camps, PO Box 3061180, Tallahassee, FL 32306-1180
    • If the organization has paid you directly, there is no need to send a copy of the check.  The letter in step #3 will serve as verification of the scholarship.  You can submit the application form and letter online or by mail.
  5. The deadline to postmark these materials is:  June 11, 2021.

Instructions For Organizations/SCHOOLS Applying On Behalf Of Campers:

If you are an organization sending in one check and one letter for multiple campers, the students do not need to apply for this discount themselves.  You can apply for them.  To complete the request for matching funds on behalf of one or more campers, please do the following:

  1. Confirm that the student(s) has registered for camp.  
    They should do this online with their family so that their personal information is accurate. If you are paying the full amount of their camp costs, then the student can just do the registration portion online without making any payment.  If the scholarship only covers a portion of the camp cost, make sure that they pay the $100.00 deposit when they register.
  2. Send us a letter on your organization's letterhead that requests the matching funds and includes the following information:
    1. Each student's full name, phone number and email
    2. The amount of funding you are giving/should be applied to each student.  (Remember, we will match dollar for dollar up to $100.00).
  3. Send the actual scholarship check with the letter from Step #2.   The check should be made payable to Florida State University.
  4. The deadline to postmark these materials is:  June 11, 2021.
  5. Mail the above to:
    The FSU Summer Music Camps, PO Box 3061180, Tallahassee, FL 32306-1180

We did the math for you

If you are an organization giving a scholarship you can keep these amounts in mind: 
MBLC costs $470.00 for overnight campers. 

  • If you give $370.00 - we will add $100.00. Camper will not be required to pay anything.
  • If you give $270.00 - we will add $100.00, difference of $100.00 to be paid by the camper
  • If you give $200.00 - we will add $100.00, difference of $170.00 to be paid by the camper
  • If you give $100.00 - we will add $100.00, difference of $270.00 to be paid by the camper

(These are just examples.  Organizations can feel free to give in any dollar amount!)
