When donors support the Band Central Fund, they experience a multiplier on their contribution. In other words, through ticket sales, sponsorships, paddle raises, auctions, raffles, ad sales and additional donations at events, Band Central has been able to help multiply donations to the fund by approximately 3:1. 

Band Central Founder Rob Fried is  a philanthropist with an extensive career in finance. Rob fused his career experience with his desire to good to create a formula that ensures that donors can rest assured their gifts are going to be maximized.


A portion of the money raised goes to pay the operating costs to put on the shows, such as musician payments, theatre rental, lights, sound, food and printing of programs. The remainder goes to the nonprofit.
