Please support our family! The Philadelphia Freedom Band is an LGBTQ+ community music group and we rely on the support and donations from patrons like you


Over the past two years, the Philadelphia Freedom Band has faced the various challenges and uncertainty that have accompanied the COVID pandemic, but we have remained dedicated to supporting our members throughout this time. Facing hardships such as quarantine, loss of practice space, and new safety considerations, it was difficult for us to find the resources to maintain our community. Despite these challenges, the PFB is committed to providing members with a family and recognizes the importance of our organization to the mental health of its members in a time when the joys of community and music are so needed.


Please consider helping the Freedom Band to continue to be a safe, accepting family for queer musicians in Philadelphia. Your donations will go directly to fund essential aspects of the band such as a physical practice space as well as safety equipment and PPE.


Still not convinced? Scroll through our Facebook photos or our instagram @philadelphiafreedomband to see real testimonials from band members about how this organization has become their home.



We will have increased 2022 expenses due to a new practice and storage location, and are looking for increased donations for our annual campaign this year. Email president@philadlephiafreedomband.com if you would like to provide a $1K+ matching donation with possible naming privileges' of concerts or practices.



Help support the Philadelphia Freedom Band

COVID-19 means that we have not practiced indoors in nearly two years. We lost major source of income for the band. However, we still have expenses and bills to pay, and we could use your help. We continue to honor our agreements, which includes paying a use fee for our rehearsal and storage space, honorariums to our concert and marching band staff, and other expenses. The band could use any support you can provide, whether that means a small donation (info below), sharing our posts and info with your network, or just connecting with us online and sharing your favorite PFB memories!

The band was awarded grants through The City of Philadelphia’s Office of Arts, Culture, and the Creative Economy, the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance, and the Philadelphia Cultural Fund, for which we are very grateful.

Help us make joyful noise.
