Support the ensemble


The Hillcrest Wind Ensemble is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.


The ensemble relies on ticket sales and contributions for all operational needs. However, ticket sales do not cover the expenses of producing a concert, primarily due to soaring venue rental prices. This makes donations more important than ever. Please consider the benefits of helping your band.


Your donations may be fully tax-deductible. You will receive a tax letter after the end of the year showing your donation for the year.
