How You Can Help Your Minnesota State Band

At one time the Minnesota State Band received financial contributions from State of Minnesota. However, that aid was ended in 2003 due to budget cuts. Since 2003, we have been completely self-funded and have operated as a nonprofit organization. Each player in the band pays an annual membership fee to support the band as well as devoting many volunteer hours in concerts and rehearsals. We humbly seek your tax-deductible contribution to help keep our music tradition alive for the next 100 years.

Our Associate Member program was created for individuals like you, who would like to be on-going active supporters of the State Band. As an Associate Member, you will receive periodic newsletters regarding band activities and events, reminders before major concerts and a special lapel pin identifying you as an honored Associate Member. Our membership year is June 1 - May 31, and memberships received by June 1 each year at the bronze, silver, gold and concert sponsor levels will be recognized on our printed programs.

Yearly Associate Member dues are $25.00.

We have added three new membership categories where donors will be recognized on our programs. These are:

Finally, we offer the opportunity to sponsor a concert, and these donors will be prominently acknowledged on the program and verbally during the concert. You may request a specific concert, if you wish.

You can mail your contribution to Minnesota State Band, PO Box 130033, St. Paul, MN 55113, or you can give online using our secure web page at

All donations are tax deductable. Your generous gift will provide the funding we need to continue our active concert schedule. Thank You For Your Support!

The Minnesota State Band is funded, in part, by the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund as appropriated by the Minnesota State Legislature with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008.
