1st Nebraska Now a 501c3 Tax-exempt Organization

I am happy to announce that the 1st Nebraska Volunteers Brass Band has received its Letter of Determination from the IRS stating that the band is a public charity and exempt from federal income tax.

The letter also stated: “You’re qualified to receive tax deductible bequests, devises, transfers or gifts.” Foundations, businesses, or individuals who give grants or donations to 1st Nebraska are able to deduct the amount of those donations from their federal income tax.

Our number one fundraising goal is to purchase Civil War era brass and drums on which we’ll play at our historically oriented performances. Smaller brass instruments like cornets generally cost between $2,000 and $2,500. Large brass instruments like tubas can cost between $4,000 and $10,000. Drums can range between $500 and $2,500.

1st Nebraska Volunteers Brass Band performs for Civic and Patriotic Events, Community Festivals, School Concerts, and Civil War activities.

If you, or a foundation or business you know, would like to help us raise funds to purchase some instruments please email me at whall1946@gmail.com for details. Soon we will include a “donate here” button on our website through PayPal.
