Penn Band students have made the conscious choice to attend Penn for reasons that extend beyond the classroom and performance stage. They embrace the challenge that comes along with pursuing a world-class education in a world-class city. We believe that opportunities made possible by the athletics department are co-curricular and only enhance what is learned in the classroom.  Penn Band participants have made a commitment to perform at the highest competitive levels and, in turn, we ask that you consider making a similar commitment.  Private support from alumni and friends like you will help the Penn Band have sustainable access to excellence and opportunities associated with athletic competition.

Financial support of Penn Band goes directly to support the costs that come along with operating a division one program.  Specific costs include:

  • Equipment
  • Travel
  • Team meals


With operational costs continuing to rise at roughly 5% per year, your philanthropy is much needed and greatly appreciated. Your investment in our students will help ensure that Penn continues to provide a world-class academic and athletic experience rivaled by no other institution.
