Donations & Fundraising

For over 50 years, the Mandarins Drum and Bugle Corps has provided a unique performing arts activity for young men and women. Thanks to contributions from supporters like you, the Mandarins have been able to maintain a tradition of excellence. In fact, the Walt Disney Company bestowed on the Mandarins two Spirit Of Disney Awards, which recognizes outstanding achievement in entertainment and educational programs for youth.

You can help the Mandarins through one or more methods of funding, either with monetary donations, shopping at amazon.com, or other ways described below.

Your contribution will help the Mandarins continue its successful program by offsetting expenses for musical instruments, uniforms, instruction, transportation, and other costs necessary to field a World-Class corps at the International Championship level. To ensure that donors and prospective donors can have full confidence in our nonprofit organization, the Mandarins adhere to a Donor Bill of Rights, which you may review here.
