The Oakland Municipal Band is funded by donations.
All our donations go to putting on the concert season. Except for small amounts for music, insurance, and equipment, our expenses are the salaries of our musicians, who are all professionals.
If you wish to donate by U.S. Mail, send your donation to:
Friends of the Oakland Municipal Band
631 Boulevard Way
Oakland, CA 94610-1642
If you are retired and required to make minimum withdrawals from your retirement plan, you may donate directly from your plan. This will offset your minimum withdrawal amount, and not count as taxable income, even if you do not itemize deductions! Consult your plan administrator to arrange for a donation!
You may donate by credit card through Paypal. Although we appreciate Paypal for providing this service, we do pay them a percentage of each transaction.
Please remember to check the box if you would like to be added to our email list. We do not share our list, nor do we send a lot of emails.
All donations are personally and promptly acknowledged.
