You can make a difference TODAY.
As the 2012 Drum Corps International World Championships Week begins in Indianapolis, Ind., The Cavaliers Drum & Bugle Corps puts the final touches on "15 Minutes of Fame" to share with our friends, fans, family and alumni.
Now in our 64th season of creating leaders through performing arts, The Cavaliers embody much more than just what's presented on the field. Thousands of young men have gained the life-changing experience that comes with each edition of the corps, and those young men in turn are becoming leaders around the world.
This year, The Cavaliers have again focused on building an unforgettable experience for not only our members, but for audiences across the country.
But it doesn't stop there.
The corps is constantly reminded of its impact on those around us. The young student who reinvigorates a passion for music education; a die-hard fan who builds the courage to audition; a proud parent who sees their young boy become a man.
These are just a few examples of the positive influence YOU can help continue for years to come. Big or small, your financial support goes a long way. Since 1948, The Cavaliers have wowed hundreds of thousands, and have inspired many more to follow their dreams and pursue excellence.
As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, we heavily rely on the generosity of friends, fans, family and alumni, and with the end of the competitive season rapidly approaching, we again ask for your generosity by way of charitable giving. If you donate cash or property to a qualified nonprofit like The Cavaliers, you may be able to deduct the contribution within generous tax law limits.
Please consider starting or renewing your contributions to the GEARS (Alumni) or CLUB 48 (Friends, Fans and Family) programs as the corps again makes history in 2011!

Each summer, 150 male brass, percussion and color guard performers aged 16-22 present a marching music show considered among the most challenging and original in the world.
The group performs at more than 30 competitions across the US and for more than 100,000 fans. Along the way, the young men not only learn about music and performing, but have a life-changing experience based on excellence, teamwork and camaraderie.
