Some of our funding comes from dues, concert proceeds and other
contributions from members.

Our major source of funding, however, is from
YOU. With an annual operating budget of $20,000 we
depend on your generous contributions to our organization
towards General Operating Support.
Additionally, in an effort to ensure long-term,
self-sustaining, independent financing, we have established
an Endowment Fund, with a target of $250,000. The yield
alone generated from this endowment would be sufficient to
finance much of the Band's operations, as well as modestly
augmenting the principal each year to offset inflation.
Instead of a cash contribution, often there
can be significant tax advantages by donating securities or
other assets directly to the Band. Another creative contribution
method is to include us in your estate plans. (Contact your
accountant or your attorney for details.)
Furthermore, many companies have a Matching
Gifts Program. Check with your employer to see if they
can multiply the value of your gift through such a program.
Won’t you jump on the bandwagon? Your
support of the Jackson Hole Community Band helps buy new music,
keeps our performance trailers rolling, pays rent in our rehearsal
space in the Jackson Hole Center for the Arts, and supplys
our equipment and instrument needs, among many other things.
The Community Foundation of Jackson Hole
is sponsoring this fundraising event for Jackson Hole non-profit
organizations on the 2nd Saturday in September.
Several of our members will be running in
this event to raise funds for the Jackson Hole Community Band
and are seeking your sponsorship.
Through a generous donation to the Community
Foundation by an anonymous donor, as well as other contributions
to the matching fund, money raised through this event will
be augmented by a matching grant, thereby magnifying the
effect of your contribution.
Please consider a contribution to the Jackson
Hole Community Band through Old Bill’s Fun Run, where
your donation will be augmented by generous community philanthropists.
Just list the JHCB on your donor form or contact
us for more information.
