There are many options for helping the BBC…

Members of the BBC participate because of their love for music, affection for each other, and for the pleasure of our audience. No members, directors, other staff or board members receive compensation.

There are many avenues for support for our varied audience:

  • Individuals and Families
  • Corporate Support
  • Our Wishlist
  • Board of Directors


We are sensitive to the difficulty that some may be encountering with the current economic situation we all face.

The Brass Band of Columbus is a bona fide 501-(c)3 non-profit, therefore, your donations are eligible for tax deductibility to the maximum amount allowed by Federal law.  We are happy to provide appropriate documentation for your use.
