Giving Day 2017

In celebration of Giving Day, the Big Red Marching and Pep Bands will be streaming a concert live from Fischell Band Center. Tune in to hear some of your favorites! The concert will begin at 7:30 PM EST on March 14th, and can be found at

The Bands have the opportunity to earn extra money by taking part in challenges offered throughout the day. The first 10 athletic teams to reach 100 *donations* can earn $5,000. We can also receive $2,500 for having the most donations ending in 3.14 by 9:00 AM.

There are also several social media challenges throughout the day. At 10 AM and 4 PM, a random post will be picked from Instagram or Twitter that uses the hashtag #CornellGivingDay. The winners of these challenges will be contacted privately and can choose where they would like these funds allocated. Both of these challenges could earn $2,500 for the Bands. Please consider helping us win these challenges by using this hashtag!

Check us out on social media to see all the band memories that we’ll be posting throughout the day. We love to hear your stories, so let us know why you’ll always #RememberTheBand. If you use the hashtags #RememberTheBand and #CornellGivingDay, you can help us win additional funds.
