The band is chartering three task teams this year to engage the talent in our band:
The Philadelphia Freedom Band is funded by our donors and members like you. Member dues are currently set at $25 per season or $50 per year. Dues help us pay for music, rehearsal space, our concert venues, and other operating costs to the band.
You can pay your dues via the following options:
- PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org as a 'Friends or Family' transaction (free for both user, and receiver). Using our 'Donate' button will result in fees for the band.
- Venmo to @philadelphia-freedomband with a note to include your e-mail in the message area of the transaction. This is free for the band.
- Check (see Wayne at rehearsal)
- Cash (see Wayne at rehearsal)
- Credit/Debit card (see Wayne at rehearsal). This results in a 2.65% fee for the band.
The Philadelphia Freedom Band board helps lead the band and coordinate events throughout the year. If you have any questions, concerns, comments, or special needs please feel free to reach out to any member of the board.
