2021 Nonprofit Selection: Now Open

It’s our favorite time of the year… Band Together’s Nonprofit Selection!

If you or someone you know is a part of an incredible nonprofit organization in our community, we would love to invite them to join the application process for Band Together’s 2021 Nonprofit Partner.

Each year, Band Together hosts a 4-month Selection Process to identify an organization in the Triangle who is going above and beyond to serve our community. The organization chosen will embark on a year-long partnership with Band Together to market their nonprofit, host events, and raise over $1 million dollars to support their mission.

Below you will find a calendar and detailed timeline regarding the application process – we would love to hear from you. If you have any questions regarding the application process, please don’t hesitate to ask! You may send any comments to Hannah – hannah@bandtogethernc.org.
