Thank you to those of you have registered; we are excited for this year’s reunion! Don’t delay- the deadline is August 20th at 11:59 p.m., no exceptions!
Did you know that there are many ways you can contribute to the Cornhusker Marching Band?! One way is to include a donation when you register for reunion weekend. Another way is the “donate now” button to the right of our web page. You can donate any amount, any time!
Last year, the Snider Fund had 108 gifts, totaling $9,260. The Lentz fund had 3 gifts, totaling $645. We were able to work with the University Foundation who helped us send out a mailing asking for additional donations. We were very fortunate to have so many donors! Thank you to all who contributed!
If your employer has a matching fund that will match your donations to a qualified nonprofit organization, then you will be able to magnify your contributions to the Band Alumni Association! We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. Ask an administrator at your company if they have a matching fund, and if so, how to utilize it.
The Lentz Fund continues to enable us to bring in excellent guest artists like composer Kim Archer. This year, the wind ensemble performed the world premiere of her “Common Threads” at CBDNA. Chal Ragsdale, internationally renowned Percy Grainger specialist, was able to work with the symphonic band while in residence.
In 2016, we were able to present our first Jack R. Snider Band Alumni Association Scholarship to Meghan Coughlin, a current drum major for the CMB. With the generosity of our donors, we are going to be able to award TWO CMB members with scholarships in 2017! Stay tuned for the selection of those recipients right after band camp!
