Volunteer for the Band

As a not-for-profit organization with no paid administrative staff, Rainbow City Performing Arts depends exclusively on volunteers to manage our affairs, from event bookings and concert production to membership services, financial management, and logistics.

There are many opportunities for volunteers to contribute to our success on a one-time or recurring basis:

  • Event volunteers - We regularly need help producing our concerts and other events. Volunteers work at the ticket window, usher our audience members, manage our concessions, and help set up and clean up both backstage and in our seating and lobby areas. Occasionally, we need licensed bartenders to help at events where we serve wine and beer. And during the summer, our marching band and color guard depend on volunteers that distribute water and manage our carts carrying parade equipment and supplies.
  • Board members - Our volunteer board of directors manages the business of the band. Volunteers - who do not need to be performing members of the band - bring their expertise and enthusiasm to the team to help us manage the complex needs of the performing ensembles and our members. Together with committee volunteers, we plan and produce rehearsals and performances, manage membership for all of our ensembles, produce printed and online promotional materials, develop relationships with individual and corporate donors and grant-making organizations, and manage all of the legal, financial, and other operating needs of the organization.
  • Other opportunities - We have many other opportunities to contribute to the band's success. Know your alphabet? You could help us at a music-sorting session. Do you have illustration or graphic design skills? Help out with posters, programs, and other promotional material. Enjoy spending time on social media sites? Help keep our fans and members informed with regular updates on our official accounts.

Corp Giving

Corporate and Foundation Support

Rainbow City Performing Arts has received the generous support of many companies and foundations over the years. Local businesses have provided cash and in-kind donations to support the band's rehearsals, instrument maintenance and repair, music purchases, and concert production, as well as providing delectable treats for concert concessions, fundraiser dessert dashes, and more. Corporate matching-gift programs help individual donors and our members extend the reach of their gifts by providing matching funds, and several of our volunteers' employers have volunteer-hour donation programs, providing financial support to the organization in recognition of the valuable time that our volunteers have invested in us. And we've received grants for special events such as the youth outreach concert the concert band held in 2012.
