The Million Dollar Band Campaign


Who are we?


Performing in front of millions of fans each year, the Million Dollar Band has been a Crimson Tide tradition for 104 years. Saturdays at the Capstone would not be the same without the excitement provided by our 400 members of the Million Dollar Band, which is one of the most respected university marching bands in the country.


Members of the Million Dollar Band are majors in almost every school and department within UA, and we are easily the largest student organization on campus. In addition to winning the Sudler Award in 2003, which designates the “National Champion” of collegiate marching bands, the Million Dollar Band has been invited to perform exhibitions all over the country.



What do we need?


Unlike most college bands, the Million Dollar Band does not have a matching set of instruments. A successful campaign will enable us to improve our sound, enhance our image and replace aging instruments.


Our goal is to raise $40,000 to fund an entire section of new instruments for the Million Dollar Band in 30 days.




How can you help?


Any gift to the band is appreciated. It's amazing what can be accomplished with a large amount of small donations.


In addition, please share our message and your loyalty via social media.

#1 Fan

Thank you for your donation!



Your gift of $25 will make a huge impact, because many of our instruments require additional costs, like hardware or carriers.


Friend of the MDB

We are so grateful for your commitment. Fun fact, there are exactly 50 clarinets in the Million Dollar Band!


Band Champion

Your gift is in celebration of the 100+ years the Million Dollar Band has been a Crimson Tide tradition.


MDB Hero

$250 will go a long way in helping us reach our goal. That's the price of one woodwind instrument!

Show your love for everyone in the band with $1 for each member. 400 members strong. Roll Tide Roll!

Your $1,000 gift make you ONE in a million in our book!

Wow! A gift at this level will allow us to buy one instrument from each group - Wind, Battery Percussion, and Keyboard/Front Ensemble Percussion.
