The Essex & Union County Marching Band’s mission is to achieve the highest standard of excellence in musical performance and education, while bridging the gap between urban and suburban communities through musical exploration. The program provides the opportunity for young musicians and performers of diverse backgrounds to develop and advance their musical talents by offering them a cooperative and competitive experience. The members learn the value of hard-work, commitment, and dedication; they develop self-confidence, independence and a sense of belonging. They also acquire vital life skills such as, teamwork, respect, responsibility and time management.

We, the staff members of the Essex & Union County Marching Band (EUC) are determined to continue providing this program to the youth in our community. However, despite the valiant efforts of the staff, parents and band members of the program to raise funds, it simply is not enough to meet all the program’s needs. Therefore, we are coming to our community for help!

Currently, EUC is in desperate need of instruments and other equipment. We respectfully ask if you are willing to help sponsor our music program. As a sponsor, your donation to the Essex and Union County Marching Band of ANY amount will be greatly appreciated and tax-deductible. However, knowing that you helped enrich the youth of our community is priceless.
