Donate to the Muchachos and help support the Corps' music education and drum corps performing arts program!
The Muchachos Drum & Bugle Corps is a performing entity of The Muchachos, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. As a non-profit, the Corps relies on member tuition, fundraising and donations to operate a music education and drum corps performing arts program year round.
Your participation in our fundraisers and campaigns helps the Muchachos continue its successful program by offsetting expenses for equipment, instruction, transportation, uniforms, rehearsal facilities, home show expenses, and other costs necessary to operate and field an all-age exhibition drum and bugle corps.
Funds raised allow us to keep tuition affordable so that our program is accessible to all youth (14 and up) and adults interested in a great drum corps experience.
Thank you for supporting the Muchachos!

Our mission is to provide Drum and Bugle Corps style education in music and the performing arts. With youth and adult members alike, our priority is to teach musical proficiency and marching arts through an on-going instructional program that provides opportunities to demonstrate the learning experience in parades and exhibition performances.
