Unlike in high school, students in the "Pride of Niner Nation" Marching Band will not be asked to fund their own participation. Instead, we are asking parents, alumni, and friends of the Niner Nation community to support them through financial contributions...and you can be part of the excitement!

As a UNC Charlotte BANDvocate, you will be supporting all the activities of the band, including scholarships, uniform and instrument maintenance, and more. In return for your support, you will receive exclusive perks as well as Niner Fanfare, our eNewsletter with inside info about upcoming shows, band news, and more.

To ensure you receive your eNewsletter, after making your donation please email us at Jennifer.Anderson@uncc.edu and provide your first, (maiden), and last name, along with your preferred email address.
