Our U of M Marching Band is one of the finest in the nation. We were SO #UMNproud to share our band with the nation during the 2018 Super Bowl halftime show. 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 jrm@umn.edu or 612-626-5141. Also, sign up to receive communication about the April 6, 2018 Band Campaign kickoff.

Thank you for supporting the Band.
