DONATE TO BENEFIT THE REDCOATS

Annual Giving

We encourage all alumni, donors and friends of the UGA Redcoat Marching Band to make an annual gift.  Gifts of any amount are welcome and appreciated throughout the year.  100% of your donations are combined with those from other donors to help with the many needs of the Marching Band.

In any given year, the RBAA Board will evaluate requests from the Directors.  Your combined donations help with scholarship support for all Redcoats (musicians and Auxiliaries), instrument purchases, funding for enhancements to the Redcoat Practice Complex and other needs that arise annually. 

The greatest benefit from your donation is the knowledge that your generous gift enhances the marching band experiences of the young men and women representing the University and the UGA Redcoat Marching Band.
