Help support Truman Bands through #BulldogsGiving

On November 11, Truman State University is having a giving day to raise money for all foundation accounts. Through the generous match of $10,000 from Colleen Ritchie (’84), the first 200 people who give $5 or more on November 11 will receive a $50 match to the Truman Foundation Fund of their choice.

What does this mean for Truman Bands? This means that donating just $5 to the Truman Band Fund will instantly jump up to a $55 dollar donation to our foundation! By supporting the band fund, you help support our students through the purchasing of new music, help bring guest artists and composers to campus, help send our ensembles on tours, kickstart our goal of new instruments for marching band, and overall provide a great atmosphere for our music students.

It is very simple to donate! To give online,
1. Go to
2. Select “other” from the list and click Submit
3. Type in how much you want to donate under “Amount”
4. Type “Truman Band Fund” into the Comments and Instructions field

Remember, the matching is only for the first 200 donations, so donate early! We are very excited about this opportunity to help better our music department and students.
