Can't make it to the Hoot? Forgot to donate? Ran outta cash? Want to donate remotely?








Following the success of Hoot IX, we set a goal to raise $10K for Hastings Middle School Music each Hoot-year. In 2019, The Hoot began sponsoring multiple music scholarships for Hastings High School graduates.


To help facilitate the fundraising needs of the Hoot, we created a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization called: RIVER CITY MUSIC & ARTS EDUCATION FOUNDATION. This will allow for online donations, as well as sponsoring scholarships, and additional opportunities to support the efforts of the Hootenany, remotely and/or year-round!

And since RCMAE Foundation is a registered Non-Profit, any documented, online donation to the Hootenany can qualify as a tax deduction - donating online (via PayPal, account not required - or via provides proof of donation to the Hootenany, which is processed through the RCMAE Foundation, a Non-Profit registered with the IRS.
