Member Assistance Program

Help give the gift of a life-changing experience!

Annually, it costs over one million dollars for each Drum Corps organization in DCI to travel down the road for 60+ days. That amounts to an average cost of $10,000 per member that covers instruction, food, housing, transportation, equipment, uniforms, etc. Through fundraising, donor giving, and corporate sponsorship, the Crossmen organization subsidizes over 60% of the actual costs! With all of these factors included, the total cost passed on to each performer is $3,800 for the summer experience.
Of course, this price tag is not insignificant, but the experience afforded to each member is invaluable. Your contribution will ensure that every individual’s membership remains viable and that each one can continue his or her affiliation with the Crossmen. The Crossmen will travel over 12,000 miles this summer entertaining tens of thousands of fans throughout the nation, all while working to positively impact the lives of its members.

How you can help!

There are two options to assist a Crossmen member with their required financial obligations


Donate to the Crossmen Scholarship Assistance Fund

In partnership with the Crossmen Alumni Association, the Crossmen Drum Corps provides need and merit-based scholarship opportunities for our members. Members will fill out an application detailing their financial needs and our administration, instructional team, and Board of Directors will review these applications.

Your contribution to the Crossmen Scholarship Assistance Fund is Tax-deductible

Option #2 

Donate Directly to a Member’s Tuition

You can opt to contribute directly towards an individual member’s summer fees, and help the individual of their choice to realize his or her dream. If you choose to sponsor a member, you may write a check to the Crossmen to go towards their fees, or you may make arrangements on an individual basis with this person.

Contributions directly towards an individual member’s tuition fees are NOT Tax-deductible.

Note: The Crossmen Drum and Bugle Corps is a program offering of Crossmen Productions, INC., an IRS recognized 501-c-03 non-profit youth organization.
