Support An UPDATED LOOK for The PRIDE Band

This campaign ends on December 14 at 11:00PM EST

We need your help! If you were a member of the PRIDE Band, special friend of the Band, or just enjoy marching band – please consider helping by making a gift or advocating for the campaign!

The PRIDE Band uniform is a source of honor for the students as they represent Missouri State at BEARS home games, national and international parades, and exhibition performances at regional and national marching contests.  A visual image of our University that has been seen from coast to coast and across the seas, the maroon and white uniforms with gold accents have been an impressive tradition seen by millions for many years.

Our current PRIDE Band uniforms are 12 years old, and it is now time for these to be replaced and updated. Normal use of a uniform is 8 years and the current uniforms are showing their age. Generous donors helped fund new uniforms in the past; we are asking for your help in raising funds for the new PRIDE Band uniforms.   

One new full uniform will cost close to $500, and with 300 PRIDE Band members, that is a total cost of $150,000.  We need ALL of our present and past PRIDE Band members and special friends of the band to help us by making a gift of any amount and supporting this project as an advocate by sharing on social media. Together we can reach our goal! Giving is easy, secure and a tax-deductible contribution!

Thank you, and GO BEARS!
