Support the Marching Band

Marchiing Band
"The U of M Marching Band's Super Bowl appearance affirms the excellence of their musicality, and their total dedication and commitment to our institution. I couldn't be more thrilled and proud of our Marching Band, and to be Director of the School of Music – we stand completely behind the Marching Band, its proud traditions, and alumni. Kudos to our Director of the Marching Band Betsy McCann, and our warmest thanks to the College of Liberal Arts for their role in supporting all that we do. Ski-U-Mah!" 
– Michael Kim, Director of the U of M School of Music

Support the Marching Band Travel Match

Benefits: Pride of Minnesota Travel Fund

Our U of M Marching Band is one of the finest in the nation. We are SO #UMNproud to share our band with the nation. We’d like to continue sharing our marching band with the rest of the country.

Many Big 10 marching bands travel to away games, but due to lack of funds the University of Minnesota Marching Band hasn't traveled (with the exception of bowl games) since 1996, before most current band members were born. We can change that!

Band Travel Fund Match

A generous Band supporter is offering a dollar-for-dollar match up to $100,000 for donations made to the band’s new travel fund until the end of March. If we can reach the goal, the band will be able to travel to one of two key away games to Nebraska or Ohio State during the 2018 season and save for travel for the 2019 season. The hope is to turn this fund into an endowment that can support travel for many years to come.

Please GIVE and help us spread the word about this match! 

If you're interested in talking with a development officer regarding a large gift, please contact Jake Muszynski at or 612-626-5141.

Thank you for supporting the Band.
