Invest FAQ

How do I give? 

Use our online donations system to give using a credit card or Paypal. 

Do I need to have a Paypal account?

No.  Once you’ve entered the pledge amount and been taken to the PayPal screen, locate the “Pay with Credit Card” link in the lower left portion of the page.  

Is my donation tax-deductible?

Yes, although you should consult your tax advisor for complete information.  Only donations over $250 will receive a donation letter from Friends of Spirit, Inc.  For others, your e-mail receipt can serve as your proof of the donation.

What is being done with the money?

This campaign is the beginning of an investment in Spirit of Atlanta’s future.  This season it will provide coverage for any unexpected tour expenses, while enabling the corps to continue to operate smoothly during the transitional period between the end of the 2016 season and the beginning of the new season in late fall.

To whom should I reach out for for additional contributions?

Anyone in your surrounding life and community! Band booster clubs, church families, past sponsors or donors.

What is meant by “who referred you?”

We are having a type of “competition” among several groups to see who can create the most donations for investment.  This helps us track that by know who encouraged you to make your $40 pledge.

Do donors have to be alumni? 

Not at all!  This is a campaign to involve everyone in the investment of Spirit of Atlanta’s future.  We value the support of family members, and fans of our corps from anywhere.  Anyone who believes in Spirit of Atlanta is encouraged to show their support.

I’m a member of Delta Group.  Does this contribution affect that? 

No.  Your membership in Delta Group is based on a monthly automatic donation; 40-40-40 is a separate initiative, and is a one-time gift.

Does this contribution count toward my dues in Friends of Spirit or SOAAA? 

No. 

Will the corps accept mailed donations by check?

Yes. Fill out the same form and select “Offline Donation” as your payment option.  The mailing info and address will appear.  Make the check payable to Friends of Spirit, Inc.
