Our organization supports the Band of the Hour by fundraising for scholarships, organizing Alumni bands, planning and augmenting Homecoming Weekend and maintaining the rich traditions and preserving stories that connect us across the years to the University of Miami Band of the Hour. The B.O.T.H.A. has a yearly operating cost which is estimated to be roughly $4,500. Membership funding helps support awards for the marching band, Homecoming Alumni Band logistics, Hall of Fame expenses, and the basic operating costs of supporting mail and web hosting for the organization. We offset our direct expenses by offering memberships to the Band of the Hour Association. Membership year commences in June.
We recently added a new membership level for young alumni. If you graduated from college in the past 10 years, the membership dues are only $30.
You may also donate directly to the BOTHA organization above and beyond our membership structure as describe below:

Make a one time or recurring donation totaling $500 or more to the Band of the Hour Association to become an Honorary Band Captain.
