Give a gift to Ascend or a Blue Knights program of your choice for 2015

DENVER, CO – Have you considered supporting the arts in 2015 by making a tax deductible, charitable contribution to the Blue Knights program of your choice, before midnight on December 31st? The Blue Knights Drum & Bugle Corps, Blue Knights Percussion Ensemble, Ascend Educational Programs, and Ascend Performing Arts events (Drums Along The Rockies, Corps Encore, and Friendship Cup) are all very worthy recipients.

There are many ways to give to the Blue Knights program you love to support.

First, you could become an “Ascend Insider” and support all of the programs in 2015. When you donate as little as $10 per month–say the cost of a couple of coffees at Starbucks–on a recurring basis through the ColoradoGives.org/BlueKnights website, you will get special “behind the scenes” access each month featuring exclusive video updates on the Blue Knights Drum and Bugle Corps, Blue Knights Percussion Ensemble, Broncos Stampede and Broncos Brass, as well as Ascend Events (such as Drums Along the Rockies, Corps Encore, and Friendship Cups). Get the latest insight from the Blue Knights directors, admin team, design team, education staff, members, and volunteers highlighting what it is like to be on the inside!

You could help the members of the Blue Knights Drum & Bugle Corps and the Blue Knights Percussion Ensemble achieve excellence by contributing to the scholarship programs.

Or you could help the programs feed their members, whether it’s an afternoon meal in March before a WGI contest or breakfast on the opening day of the 2015 summer DCI summer tour.

Another aspect to remember about being a donor is that many companies match the donations their employees make to nonprofits. If you’re making (or made in 2014) a donation to any Blue Knights program follow up with your company to see if they offer a matching gift program. You could also include the Blue Knights in your will (email us here).

Gifts are plentiful during the holiday season. Please consider offering a gift to the Blue Knights!
