Band Directors’ Circle

We appreciate you! Your support and your gifts have a tremendous impact on music at Michigan State University. Every student and every faculty member depends upon the generosity of friends like you. As a loyal and valued supporter, we wanted you to have the first chance to take advantage of a unique and limited sponsorship opportunity for the 2013 season.

What a terrific way to show your Spartan pride: have the 300-member Spartan Marching Band spell out your name in Spartan Stadium on Game Day! This is an exciting sponsorship opportunity to support the University Bands and join the University Band Directors’ Circle for 2013.

As a sponsor, you will receive the following perks:
• Pre-game sideline passes
• Post-game recognition
• Post-game name spell out and professional photo keepsake
• 4 tickets to Concert Band performance(s) of your choice (2013-14 season)
• Print and online publicity of sponsorship

Available football home game sponsorship dates:

Your tax deductible sponsorship gift provides much needed support for our student band ensembles to purchase new instruments, to travel, and to fund recording and commissioning projects. The deadline for securing your 2013 sponsorship is September 2, 2013. Please note this sponsorship opportunity is not aligned with Band Fan giving levels or the Spartan Fund.
