Donate to Southwind!

Southwind Drum & Bugle Corps is part of Empower Youth in the Performing Arts, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that operates solely on member tuition and donations from people like you!  Every cent you donate goes into providing the kids who march the best experience for the upcoming  competitive season.

Here is a sample of what your donation will help provide:

  • 3 meals and 1 snack daily
  • Charter buses for the competitive season
  • Housing (even staying at schools costs money)
  • Top notch instruction to educate the members
  • Innovative show design, music, drill, and props
  • Upkeep of the member’s equipment (horns, percussion, flags)
