The Band Alumni Association Inc (BAA) would like to announce the re-naming of our general trust fund the Jack R. Snider Band Alumni Association Fund. Currently the funds in this account go towards the UNL Bands.
Services the BAA provides the band through this fund include: donations for the band banquet, TGIO event, nail bags for band camp, hosting the Highlights concert reception, drill writing software for the directors, and so much more! A small percentage goes towards our operating costs which includes our website and maintenance and Post Office Box fees. All of our board members and officers are volunteers.
New to the Jack R. Snider Fund will also include scholarships for marching band members. We have designated that 75% of those scholarships go towards non music-education majors and 25% to music education majors. We will consult with the directors of the band and will be able to grant scholarships to deserving individuals, as well as recruit for sections that need to be filled!
At any time throughout the year, you may donate to the Snider Fund or to the Lentz Fund, which provides funding to the School of Music to commission new works for the concert bands and to fund the appearance of guest artists with the UNL concert bands. In the next week there will be a “Give Now” button on the right hand side of our website in which you can make your donation!
You may also donate money to either fund as you register for the reunion weekend. Your membership fee ($25 individual or $40/couple) goes directly towards the Snider Fund and helps fund the band program and students. Your marching fee secures your spot on the field and you’ll be given a name tag and music.
If you have any questions about our funds, please contact us.
We hope to see you at the reunion weekend September 4-6: registration is now LIVE!
