Annual Giving And Membership
We encourage all friends and alumni of the MMB to make an annual gift to our friends group, The Elbel Club. Gifts of any amount are welcome and appreciated through the annual giving efforts. These gifts are combined with those from other donors to address the many needs of the Marching Band.
In any given year these needs may include scholarship support for MMB members, instrument purchases, funding for our Graduate Student Instructor positions and other needs that may arise. In addition to these activities, approximately 50% of the funds raised each yet are added to the MMB’s endowments to provide long-term funding stability.
The greatest benefit from Elbel Club participation is the knowledge that your generous gift enhances the opportunities and experiences of the young men and women representing the University in the Michigan Marching Band.
