The Aerophone Community Band Corporation was recognized by the IRS in 2014 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Aerophone is not affiliated with any school or arts organization and is fully self-funded. Non-profit status allows Aerophone to receive charitable contributions to cover its expenses. These donations are deductible contributions under federal tax law.
The band's expenses, to ensure it functions as a high-quality organization, include purchasing printed music, rental of rehearsal space, insurance and paying for a professional conductor.
Aerophone appreciates the support of the following sponsors, who help defray our operating expenses and allow us to keep tuition rates low:
