Anything Helps - Please Consider Helping Our Active Brothers

Kappa Kappa Psi is a guiding light with which band students can grow, learn, and develop themselves and their band programs. Even through these tough times, we know our brothers will continue to do whatever they can to help one another and their band programs. As Alumni, one of the best ways we can help our active brothers is through financial support, especially during these unprecedented times.

Membership dues and chapter fees are due at the end of this month – please consider making a tax-deductible donation to a local chapter so they can focus on chapter operations and serving their college band program.

Any questions? Please reach out to
