Donate to The Band
It takes a lot of money and hard work to keep a multi-faceted musical group like this going for 36 years. Fortunately, SFLGFB is blessed with a group of generous donors who believe in our mission and support it with cash and in-kind donations. Some of these donors are the Band’s own members and their families & friends. There are also donations generously made by our audience members, as well as businesses large and small. Several large corporations with gift-matching programs also grace our donors list. Good old-fashioned fundraisers like garage sales and bake sales are held yearly and can be lots of fun. SFLGFB is also affiliated with businesses including Cole Hardware and Community Thrift.
