Support FUPE

How to Support FUPE

FUPE is funded through the Farmington United Performace Groups, a Michigan non-profit 501c(3) organization. Funding for FUPE is provided via member dues and charitable donations of time, money and goods. To donate to the Farmington United Percussion Ensemble please send an email inquiry to for additional instructions.


Show your support by wearing some FUPE swag! Items are available for purchase at the FUPE Gear Site.


As with any organization, the show does not go on without the help and assistance of volunteers. FUPE relies on volunteer assistance for many tasks, including:

  • Show Day Assistance
  • Communications
  • Uniform Fitting
  • Prop Building
  • Chaperones
  • Fundraisers (Red Wings Concessions, Brownie Bake off, etc.)

Help a little, help a lot. Take the lead or lend a hand. New faces always welcome; no experience necessary. Sounds like a lot of work, but those that have done it will tell you, "it's a lot of fun".

FUPE has a Volunteer Resource Committee (VRC) that meets monthly to help support the students and staff in their endeavor. The VRC is open to all FUPE parents and we invite you to join us. Keep an eye on the Parent Calendar to see when the next meeting is scheduled. You can also contact the following individuals:

Monetary Donations

FUPE is currently fundraising for the following initiatives:

  1. $3,000 for updated sound equipment. Our current sound equipment is quite dated and with the activity moving towards electronic production it is imperative for us to update this equipment.
  2. $2,500 for updated drum carriers and accessories. Time has not treated our out dated drum carriers well.



Donation of Goods

Donations of food, drinks, and paper products are welcomed as well! These items are used for our trip to Dayton and end of year Awards Banquet. Those wishing to donate goods can contact us at for more information. Or feel free to bring whatever you can spare to the Friends and Family show. More information about the Friends and Family show can be found on the Contact Us page.
