Maryland Giving Day 2021

Wednesday, March 3, 2021

Help Support the MSOM Instrument Fund in 2021!

For Maryland Giving Day this year, UMBAO is joining forces with the Mighty Sound of Maryland to help raise money for their Instrument Fund.

Here is the MSOM Giving Day support schedule (all hours are Eastern Standard Time). Help raise money for the Instrument Fund by participating during these special hours!

9–10 am and 7–8 pm: Alumni Support; 9–10 pm: Students; 4–5 pm: Band Parents

Support your old MSOM section and help them win a prize. See the Instrument Fund Giving Day page for details.

Your gift to the Marching Band Instrument Fund will truly help the marching band enhance the quality of their performances. They provide instruments to approximately 70% of members to ensure a uniform look and sound, and to help ease the financial burden for students. The regular use of instruments for rehearsals and performances requires ongoing repairs and replacement, and many of the instruments are as old as our alumni! With your help, we can focus on making critical instrument purchases and repairs allowing MSOM and the Pep Band to perform at its best! And unlike an endowed fund, these funds will be available for use immediately.

Their first priority will be to replace the trumpet, mellophone, trombone, and baritone sections. Your gift can allow purchase of:

  • 20 mellophones at $1,250 each
  • 20 baritones at $1,600 each
  • 20 trombones at $1,000 each
  • 20 trumpets at $1,000 each

Thank you for supporting the Instrument Fund on Giving Day — Wednesday, March 3.
