How you can Support the WCCB

Donations

The Washtenaw Community Concert Band is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We are not financially affiliated with any other organization and receive no income from tax dollars or any source other than what we can raise with help from our friends. WCCB concerts are FREE and open to the public. With the exception of the conductor, all persons affiliated with the WCCB donate their time—as musicians and to support all the functions of the band.

An organization of this size and caliber has many expenses, including music and equipment. You are invited and encouraged to support this community band through your donations.

You can make a donation online here:
