For over ninety years, the Lumberjack Marching Band has represented the pride, spirit, and traditions of Northern Arizona University. As musical ambassadors for NAU, the band serves students, alumni, and the community through exciting and dynamic performances. YOUR donation will support the band's growing operation costs and elevate the marching band experience for our members and fans. This year, we are seeking donations toward the purchase of additional uniforms, as size of the ensemble has increased by over 40 members!
As the band and our reputation continue to grow, so do the costs to run this prestigious program. The Lumberjack Marching Band is committed to ensuring that playing with the band is accessible to anyone who qualifies to join. The band is composed entirely of students majoring in a variety of areas such as engineering, music education, biology, communication, and more. Our members come from diverse backgrounds and include first-generation and transfer students.
Over 180 students perform in the band. Expenses for band members include uniforms, such as gloves and hats, equipment, such as flags and new instruments, and meals during long game days. Your support ensures the Lumberjack Marching Band remains accessible for all members and helps keep the NAU spirit strong!
