The Leicester Town Band is a (501©3) non-profit organization, located in Leicester, Massachusetts, which provides an outlet for people, of all ages, to participate in a group that enjoys the same common denominator: MUSIC. We are a twenty (and growing!) member concert band comprised of a wide range of talents and instruments. Our songs range from classical to 80’s Rock! We like a wide variety!
What is a 501©3 non-profit? Per the IRS a 501©3 organization is “To be tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, an organization must be organized and operated exclusively for exempt purposes set forth in section 501(c)(3), and none of its earnings may inure to any private shareholder or individual. In addition, it may not be an action organization, i.e., it may not attempt to influence legislation as a substantial part of its activities and it may not participate in any campaign activity for or against political candidates. Organizations described in section 501(c)(3) are commonly referred to as charitable organizations…”
… In other words, we perform for fun! All profit contributed to the band goes towards expenses and music scholarships.
