Thank you for your incredible support during this exciting time!

UPDATE: The Band is going to Frisco! Thank you to the nearly 1,100 donors who contributed to help us meet the goal. Still inspired to give? UM student musicians can benefit from your generosity. Donate today to support current and future Grizzly Marching Band needs. 

The Grizzly Marching Band has the opportunity to perform on the national stage at the FCS championship game in Frisco, Texas. Join us in helping the Grizzly Marching Band seize this moment.  

Travel costs are expected to exceed $200,000. The University has committed key support for the band’s trip. Additional support is needed from Griz Nation to realize this historic opportunity.  

Your gift of any amount before the big game on Sunday, Jan. 7, helps UM’s student musicians make music history while providing a vibrant game-day experience for our fans in the heart of Texas.  

“The Grizzly Marching Band is thrilled to have this opportunity…. We know there are thousands of supporters of the Grizzly Marching Band across the country who want to be part of the movement to get the band to Texas.” - Grizzly Marching Band Director Kevin Griggs 

Your contribution will cover: 

  • Airfare for band members and their instruments 
  • Busses for ground transportation in Texas 
  • Food and lodging 

Thank you for joining together to propel the Grizzly Marching Band toward its momentous performance at the national championship game.  

Any contributions above what’s needed for the championship game will support current and future Grizzly Marching Band needs.
