Become a Benefactor


If you are a parent, guardian, extended family member, or friend of a Kennesaw Mountain band member; or, an alumni or alumni parent; or, maybe you are simply a fan of Kennesaw Mountain bands, you can support the Kennesaw Mountain band program by becoming a Benefactor. The Benefactor program is open to all non-corporate individuals who wish to make a tax-deductible monetary donation to the Kennesaw Mountain band program and includes commensurate benefits.


Kennesaw Mountain Band Program Benefactor


Around 200 wind, percussion, and guard students participate in the marching band, concert bands, Winter Guard, Jazz Band, Pit Orchestra, and Ensembles at Kennesaw Mountain High School. We believe that these offerings not only help to develop a student’s musical and performance interests but also help the student learn valuable life lessons such as teamwork, discipline, creativity, and a strong commitment to excellence. About 20% of band program members rely on financial support from the Kennesaw Mountain Bands Organization (KMBO) to participate. We strive to allow every student to learn what it takes to achieve excellence and one way you can help these students is by becoming a Kennesaw Mountain Band Program Benefactor.
