WHAT IS “GIMME FIVE”?
Gimme Five is a fundraising campaign for Friends of the Franklin Band. We are asking friends, family and fans of the band to “Gimme Five” with a $5 (or more!) recurring monthly donation.
WHAT WILL THE MONEY BE USED FOR?
The first and most urgent need is to repair or replace damaged instruments. More than half of our instruments need to be repaired or replaced. The cost to replace them is over $300,000. This is NOT something that is currently covered by band fees.
WHY A RECURRING DONATION?
While we gratefully accept any donation, recurring donations give the band a consistent, reliable monthly income. This will allow us more options when budgeting the best ways to help – financing instruments over time, for example.
ARE DONATIONS TAX DEDUCTIBLE?
Yes, Franklin Band Boosters is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization and any donations are tax deductible.
