Here are some fun gift (and giving) options for your Holiday Lists!

Giving TuesdayGiving Tuesday

November 27th is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

Please consider a year-end tax-deducible gift to the Band Alumni Scholarship Fund or other areas that support the Minuteman Band!
