Unable to make a large donation all at once? Not a problem! Patrons have the option to become 'Sustaining Supporters.' Basically, donors will make their contribution in monthly or bi-monthly installments. The total yearly contribution will be reflected wherever recognition is announced. NO additional fees apply for Sustaining Supporters. In the donation area above, you will have the opportunity to make recurring/sustaining donations when you use our online donation system.
While the the band never shares its donors personal information, donors may still choose to remain anonymous. Anonymous contributors will not be listed in any the band publications or here on this website. The preferred method of anonymous giving is by money order or certified bank check made out to the Carlisle Town Band, Inc. If paying by personal check, donors should inclose a brief letter stating their wish to remain anonymous. You may also make an anonymous donation using our online credit card processing system.
