The Boston Crusaders Drum & Bugle Corps is one of the finest in the world! Membership in the corps represents an incredible amount of time and energy put into the quest to be one of the best.
In order to continue the powerful educational experience the Crusaders are known for, we need the support of our many friends, family and fans. Although members shoulder a significant portion of the financial needs, over 60% of our operating expenses (food, travel, instruction) must be covered by donations from friends like you. We ask that you help the Crusaders and the member who is sending you a request. Your donation will directly benefit the member and the organization as a whole.
Thank you for helping the corps and its members become the best that they can be.
