It's really not as hard as it seems. You just have to go and get the word out.

No joke the donations thing, asking for a dollar from a friend really helps. When my friend marched phantom in 06/07 she set up a paypal to have people send her money online. She paid for both years completely just by asking friends on facebook, myspace, aim. Okay not completely....I just know that big old 2200ish for tour, she got both of those out of the way. I think she had to pay for train tickets still but thats about it.

Because I started LATE last year trying to raise money (mid-April), I wan only able to raise half of my dues, so I had to pay the other half. this season, I'm going to be much more responsible. I'm going to start raising money after the jan camp (jan 16), after I get my contract in hand. Which btw, forte's not handing ANYONE conrtacts until Jan camp, to be fair and let everyone have an equal shot.

it kinda goes along with the asking for donations thing, but set up a booth at your local band competitions. the people that go see the kids perform in high school/middle school are all about keeping music alive. if you tell them your story and kinda *hint* at a donation you can make a lot of money. a friend and i did this at our exhibition show to raise money for new drums for the winter season. we made almost $1000 in a day

Just the boost of encouragement that I needed!! :)

Do you think 6 months is enough time to earn all the money for the fees if I plan to just work for it?

Some corps have a thing set up where if you write a check out to a certain group (Ex. MYPPA), then you get tax return, or something. wasn't sure how it worked, but you mention that, and people wanna give more money. So contact the director about that too, one of Mel's post reminded me..

YES. However, you may not want to start until you are COMPLETELY sure you are accepted within the organization, so your not misleading people.

Have you ever wanted to march DCI, DCA, or WGI, but you "complained" that you couldn't due to money issues? Can't pay for the camps or the tour fees? Are you just bummed out about that fact? Wellll....you don't have to be, ever. There are multiple ways to come up with money, that a lot of people overlook.

The first of course is fundraising. Fundraising is a GREAT way to raise money. Some corps or indoor lines have fundraising ideas set up through the organization, just as a march-a-thon, bowl-a-thon, raffling items, selling magazine subscriptions, you name it. So the first thing you should do is talk to the director and your respective caption head of the organization. Find out whether or not your organization has any fundraisers set up. If not, then suggest that they do. Hey, even car washes will work. Anything to raise money, right?

The second thing is something some people don't feel comfortable doing. However, if you REALLY wanna march, you'll do it. It's asking for donatations from people. Im not talking complete strangers or anything. Ask all your family and all your friends, and I mean ALL. Send out letters (those work GREAT) to everyone, call people, anything. Even if someone gives you $1.00, thats $1.00 less that YOU have to pay out your pocket, so take it. Say your tour dues are $2600.00. If you get 200 people to put in $12.50, there you go! Bam! $12.50! It's just THAT easy! And, if you try, I bet you can find 200 people. And most people wil be willing to give you a little bit of money, after you explain what its about. So send them a letter or phone call, and explain what DCI/DCA/WGI (whichever your doing) is, and where their money is going. It will usually work. A great thing to do is ask people whove marched corps. I wouldn't suggest asking some marching this season, put people who have aged out will usually give a few bucks to help. Heck, from a family friend this past season (turns out he marched 2 years of blue raiders, then phantom for 4-5 years bassline, then aged out with blue raiders) gave me $200.00 this past season. TWO HUNDRED DOLLARS. All because I asked him, and told him about the organization. Ever heard the saying "you'll never know until you try"? It prefectly applies here.

Third; ask for sponserships from companies. If your endorsed by anyone, say sabian or something, send them a letter! Again explain what it is, and that any monetary donatation would be beneficial. If your family works for or owns a buisness, ask em. Anyone in your family with connections can hook you up. I know people that have COMPLETELY paid their dues, just by asked a company to sponser them.

And fourth would be YOU fundraising/working yourself. You could go mow a few lawns maybe, get a couple bucks. Or sell a product, much like people sell cookie dough. There are many ways to fundraise, be creative!


With all this in mind, I'm sure you can think of some ways to raise money for dues. Many, many staff and members of DCI corps have said "Money is NEVER an issue". And really, however much you argue, its not. I just gave you multiple ways you can raise money, so better come up with a better excuse. Where there's a will, there's a way. Think about it. If you marched Corps, you'd be putting in 110% all summer long. Why not give that 110% now? You can raise the money. I personally know many people who never had to put in a PENNY for drum corps. And howd they raise the money? Fundraising, sending out letters asking for donatations, EVERYTHING that I mentioned here. Two such examples are the Mulherin twins from Memphis, TN. They both raised ALL their dues (which, between the two of them, was AT LEAST $5200.00). And, they had money left over for spending money for the summer! So really, there is absolutely NO time when the "money excuse" is acceptable.


For everyone who has read this, I hope it helps. Think about all of this. Spend some time brainstorming, you can think of ways to raise money I'm sure. I hope to see each and every one of you on the road and on the feild this summer.

If anyone has any other ideas or ways to raise money, go ahead and post them. Feel free to dicuss these ideas as well.

Say your tour dues are $2600.00. If you get 200 people to put in $12.50, there you go! Bam! $12.50! It's just THAT easy! And, if you try, I bet you can find 200 people.

Some corps have "scholarship" options. Ex. You enter a letter saying what being in the corps and marching means to you. You win, you get 1000 off your dues! DCI also has these scholarship options available, as do some organizations. ENTER ANY AND ALL OF THESE THAT YOU ARE ABLE TO. Getting ANY money off your dues should excite you, right? So, whats thw worst that can happen? You write a nice little essay, and don't get picked. On the other hand, you could get BIG money off your dues. It's worth the 20 minutes.

wturner901 says: You can send letters to local government officials. It works brilliantly, as if they donate to a nonprofit organization that deals with "The Arts", they can say they support the education of art in young people. (DOES NOT WORK FOR DCA LOL) I know a few people that were ballsy enough to do it. I think they got like $100 from different people, each. This was local government. (Mayor, State Congress, etc.). I wouldn't advise sending a letter to Obama.
Hosting a garage sale will get you a bit more than 12.50, by the way. You can pile up all the useless crap around your house and probably get at least $300.

bltsponge says: To add to the asking friends for donations thought: If the corps you wanna march has an alumni organization, try asking there. I know the Cabs alumni has been very helpful for younger people in the competing corps who needed the money to march. I'm sure other corps' alumni are helpful as well.
What fking corps has dues of 2600 bucks?
i have marched in HS and Div. 2 DCI.
my opinions and comments are mine and mine alone, and in no way reflect the beliefs, teachings, or opinions of any group i am associated with.

and the 2600 (at elast for Forte) covers EVERYTHING, inclusing camps. So really, the SUMMER fee is more like 2100 you could say.

Crown's fees are at least 2300 for new members. However, if you plan on auditioning for Crown, I suggest you get other corps experience first. DCI. Not DCA. I dont know their policy, but I'm sure theyd take someone whos done 2 years of DCI over someone whos done 2 of DCA. Not bashing DCA guys, dont misread my post.
