Star of the North Concert Band was formed and incorporated as a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization in 1994. The majority of financial support for the band comes from dues and tour payments by band members with additional income from our Associate Members and donors.

Anyone can become an Associate Member of the band by contributing an annual, tax deductible donation of $25. Associate Members can receive concert notification mailings, are eligible to tour with the band, and may receive a band lapel pin upon request.
