The Guard Pipes & Drums is registered as a Non-Profit 501(c)(3) organization. In order to raise the money necessary for operation, the band performs at events and holds an annual fundraiser "The Guard's Welcome ". Though the band is paid for some performances, band members are not paid for their time and talent; all fees go directly to fund the organization. But even after these efforts, there still remains a deficit. To make up the difference, members and their families contribute as well. Additionally, the band counts on the support from individuals, corporations and other groups to compliment these donations.
As a Non-Profit 501(c)(3) organization; all donations are considered a "charitable deduction". Also, many companies offer donation-matching programs. Please check to see if your company can help.
