Marching Mizzou was selected to represent the state of Missouri in the 2022 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, marking the band’s first appearance in that parade. The more than 300 members of Marching Mizzou will be spending many months preparing for their parade debut. Rehearsals and creative fundraising events will bring the school and community closer together and ready the students for the performance of a lifetime! To kick-start the band’s fundraising efforts to help alleviate high costs to each individual band member, Macy’s has donated $10,000 in support of their march towards the Big Apple. Additionally, the University has committed to match dollar-for-dollar the donations made by supporters like you, up to $60,000! The goal for private fundraising is $70,000.
The highest priority for the alumni band this year and next will be working to support this trip. Rather than make your usual Homecoming donation to us, we ask instead that you contribute to the “Marching Mizzou to Macy’s” fund.
