Support The Bands

There are many ways to show your support to the OSU Marching and Athletic Bands. Thank you in advance for your generosity in supporting the finest marching band program in the country.

Help us Dot the “i”

For the last 135 years, The Ohio State University Marching Band has provided the soundtrack to the Buckeye experience.  The band’s renditions of our fight songs and “Carmen Ohio” stir the emotions of all those who bleed scarlet and gray.

As we embark on this exciting endeavor to endow The Best Damn Band In The Land, we thank you in advance for your support in helping us march down the field forever.

The Challenge

The university has assembled a $1M budget to support all of the Marching Band’s administrative and operational expenses. However, the university hopes to soon provide this funding to other areas and has asked The Ohio State University Marching Band to create a comprehensive endowment by raising $10M in private funds.

These dollars will ensure the Marching Band has a permanent source of funding to always support our greatest needs – ensuring The Best Damn Band In The Land will always be scripting “Ohio” and dotting the “i”.
