Donor to Match Funds for Rockford Marching Band

The Rockford Marching Band has an exciting opportunity to earn up to $10,000 for their general fund. A very generous donor has approached the Rockford Band Parents board and pledged to match all donations received dollar for dollar from now through October 31 up to $5,000.00!

This year is a very special year for the award winning marching band. In November, the 315-member band will be marching in the 91st Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in NYC in addition to performing a community concert in Central Park. They will be one of just seven high school bands chosen for this honor from hundreds of applicants and the first band from West Michigan to take part in the parade.

To help meet the goal of raising $5,000.00 in donations, the Rockford Band Parents are turning to the community for help. There are several ways to ensure the band meet this fundraising challenge. Direct monetary donations can be made safely and securely on the band’s website at, on their Facebook Page thru a GoFundMe account at or by mail with checks made out to the Rockford Band Parents, PO Box 750, Rockford, MI 49341-0750. All donations are tax deductible and will help continue the legacy of excellence in the Rockford Bands award-winning, nationally recognized program. In exchange for donor generosity, the band will recognize donors on the Rockford Bands Facebook page and website.
