How This Marching Ensemble Met a $30,000 Fundraising Goal in a Few Short Weeks

Regardless of how large your group is, where your group is located, or the relative economics of the region in which you live, a well-coordinated crowdfunding campaign is your best bet for large-scale fundraising.

In 2017 and 2018, the Genesis Drum and Bugle Corps from Austin Texas used the FansRaise platform to create a capital campaign fundraiser to replace mission-critical equipment.

What they found is that a “wash-rinse-repeat” system, built specifically for the performing arts, worked wonders for them.

What they learned was that by coordinating messaging in a way that made the campaign “personal” to individual members, and by creating a sense of team-building, their small time investment paid off immeasurably.

By the way this model has been adapted successfully by hundreds of performing ensembles around the United States:

  • Middle School and High School arts programs
  • Community theater, musicals and drama
  • Instrumental, vocal, strings
  • Non-profit independent arts organizations
