Update from the BMB (and a new video)

September 06, 2018

Donations are rolling in and we continue to be amazed by the generosity of our alumni, fans, friends and family. We've raised over $10,000 so far and all donations, no matter the amount, have a huge impact on helping us sustain our 400 person marching band. From uniforms to instruments, your donations truly keep the band marching.


I wanted to encourage you to check out this new video of the BMB. It features some of our members and really portrays what the BMB means to students (and, you'll get a sneak peak into what our 400 person band looks like!)


Help us keep the momentum going and continue to share this page with other fans of the BMB.


Thanks again,


Randy Dickerson

Director of the Blugold Marching Band


We're off to a great start!

August 27, 2018

WOW, we are overwhelmed with how generous our fans have been so far! In just 1 week, more than $3,300 has been raised from 24 donors. Thank you to those who have given and/or shared our page!


We have a long way to go to reach our goal, so if you haven't already, please share our page with your family, friends and social media networks.


In other news, the band members are all back on campus and band camp is underway. We have an exciting season in store for you. If you haven't already seen it, check out this great article and video from WEAU, a local news station, featuring the BMB! 


Choose a giving level


ANY amount counts!

Whether you can give $10, $25 or $250, your gift of any amount will make a difference. If all of our fans and alumni gave a gift of $25, the opportunities for the BMB would be endless!


Copyright expenses

We can't have a Homecoming show without some great tunes. If 100 of our fans and alumni gave $50, we could cover the cost of our copyright expenses for our Homecoming show.


The cost of our student fee

This season, each band member paid $115 to be a part of the BMB (this is on top of the out-of-pocket expenses that they will incur throughout the season). Your gift of $115 will help us get one step closer to minimizing out-of-pocket expenses for students band members.


Adopt 1 BMB member!

With a gift of $250 or more, you can "Adopt" a BMB member! You will receive a photo of your BMB member with his/her section in the band!


Adopt 2 BMB members!

Do you know two members of the BMB? You can adopt 2 members for $400! You'll receive two photos when you adopt 2 band members.


Fund a new uniform!

With a gift of $600, you'll receive all of the perks of adopting a band member AND you'll help us purchase one of our new uniforms! We need to purchase 100 uniforms, so your gift will make a big difference.



We need to purchase a minimum of 16 sousaphones this year, each of which costs at least $6,000. You'll receive all of the perks of adopting a BMB member and help us cover 1/6 of the cost of a sousaphone!
