Giving to the Panther Marching Band

The University Band program has continued to raise the bar of excellence both on the playing field and on the concert stage. 

The significant cost of our uniforms, equipment, and practice space are all supplemented by generous gifts from the alumni and friends of the Band, and we are so very grateful for the support that enables us to continue to work our hardest to inspire that infectious growl of the Panther Nation.

Even during difficult economic times such as these, our Band is marching on with a great drive for more success. The University Band program is one of the largest and most visible student organizations at Eastern, involving more than 250 spirited students across the campus. The program has a proud history of providing high-quality service to Eastern as well as appearances throughout the State of Illinois.

A donation from you to the Eastern Bands (click here) will help ensure our students receive the best training, instruments, uniforms and overall support necessary to maintain this legacy of excellence. Click here to learn about the additional needs of the Eastern Band program.

Eastern Illinois University offers many different giving opportunity vehicles (click here) such as securities, real estate, insurance, and estate gifts. Consult your financial advisor to learn what vehicle may be best for your circumstances. Additionally, this year we are very excited about the offering of Game Day Sponsorships (click here) for the 2010-2011 season that may be of interest to you.

We are proud to work so closely with so many talented student and faculty members whose hard work has contributed so much to the celebrated spirit of the Panther Nation. We thank you for your ongoing support of the Band program and look forward to working with you to ensure this tradition of excellence continues for years to come.
