Giving Day for Marching Illini


Band wants community to march "forth" with donations

UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS (WCIA) — On March 4, the UI band wants you to march “forth” with donations. It’s Giving Day for the Marching Illini. Last year, they got more than 200 gifts and raised about $18,000. This year they have a goal of 375 gifts. It’s the number of people in the band.

Money is used for things like trips, new instruments and uniforms. The link will still be live for a day or two after Giving Day. People can still give to the Marching Illini after the link comes down on the UI page.
