Now's the time to show your support for The Company of Fifers & Drummers - our 2021 Annual Fundraising Drive is underway!
To Our Friends in the Fife and Drum Community,
Happy Holidays and a big thank you from The Company of Fifers & Drummers to you, our community, for your support of over the years! The Company of Fifers & Drummers is a non-profit organization formed in 1965 to perpetuate the historical significance and folk traditions of fife and drum music, and to foster the spirit of fellowship among fifers and drummers everywhere.
You play a key role in making this organization the heartbeat of what has become a far-reaching avocation and profession around the world. As this year of slowly moving away from online rehearsals and stepping back into parades, musters, and performances comes to a close, we ask for your generous support of the Annual Fund.
Our 2021 Annual Fund appeal goal is $10,000 and your tax-deductible donation will provide support for operating expenses including building upkeep and maintenance, fire and security monitoring, utilities, web hosting fees, and insurance. Contributing to the fund allows continuous operation of The Company of Fifers & Drummers from year to year. If you are interested in more financial details you can read our Financial Disclosure.
Last year, we exceeded our fundraising goal by $5,000 – can you help us do it again? If you are able, you can support us financially by making a donation of any amount through PayPal (recommended) or by sending a check payable to The Company of Fifers & Drummers, P.O. Box 496, Ivortyon, CT 06442.
