The Palatine Concert Band is organized as a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational institution. Although players are unpaid volunteers, the band incurs expenses for music, large instrument repair, printing, guest artists, professional leadership and general operating expenses. Like most arts organizations, the band cannot survive on revenue from admission fees alone. Several sources provide support:
The Palatine Park District provides stable financial and facilities support, for which the band is most grateful.
Concertgoers support the band through their admission fees, as well as their enthusiasm and encouragement, which are essential for an artistic organization to flourish.
Advertisers help both the band and themselves by purchasing ads in the concert programs and on this website. We urge you to patronize our commercial supporters.
Friends of the Band: contributions and grants from private individuals are essential to keep alive the tradition of Music in the Community. Donors during the most recent twelve months include:
Bob and Connie Brink
Gerald and Sandra Kinney
Joseph and Susan Shearin
Jan and Don Van Cleave
Donations are gratefully acknowledged with a letter and a tax receipt.
