We are overwhelmed with the generosity of our alumni, phans, and phamily.

We think it’s fair to say that our first, ever Phan-a-Thon was a HUGE success!

If you missed some or all of the live broadcast, don’t worry!

We’ll be sharing recap clips from throughout the event over the next week. All of our “On-the-50” video series, including introductions and insight into every production from 1975 to now, will be shared throughout the month of July. Also, see below for some on-demand content available to rewatch NOW on our YouTube Channel.

If you’d still like to contribute, we’ll be leaving the donation form up and continuing to tally the donor totals through Sunday, July 5.

To all who tuned-in, showed up, and donated….. THANK YOU.

Welcome to the Phan-a-Thon!

This year, we can’t be together on what would have been our annual homecoming for the Phantom Regiment community: the Show of Shows. So Phantom Regiment is bringing the show to you!

The Phantom Regiment Phan-a-thon is a 24-hour virtual fundraising event that inspires and unites phans and phamily across the world. On this day, it’s all about our great organization and the people who make Phantom Regiment so special!

Alumni, members, instructors, staff, family, and friends of Phantom Regiment are encouraged to show their PR pride and make a gift to support the future of the organization.

Our goal: 1,956 individuals make a donation of any amount to support the future of Phantom Regiment during the Phan-a-Thon!

Questions & Answers

Below you will find answers to many common questions about Phan-a-Thon 2020

The Phantom Regiment Phan-a-thon is a 24-hour virtual fundraising event that inspires and unites phans and phamily across the world. On this day, it’s all about our great organization and the people who make Phantom Regiment so special!

Alumni, members, instructors, staff, family, and friends of Phantom Regiment are encouraged to show their PR pride and make a gift to support the future of the organization.

Our goal: 1,956 individuals make a donation of any amount to support the future of  Phantom Regiment during the Phan-a-Thon!

Since 1956, Phantom Regiment has enhanced the personal growth and development of young people through programs that promote excellence in education, entertainment, and competition in the performing arts.

What started as a local drum & bugle corps for youth in the Rockford, Ill. area has become an iconic brand known throughout the global marching arts community.

Our programs teach young-people the essential skills necessary to become leaders in their communities, businesses, classrooms, and beyond. Our accomplished alumni can be found throughout the world, and are connected through a shared performing arts experience.

Whether you are a member, parent, staff, volunteer, donor, or simply a “phan”: your support helps us to continue our mission of providing life-changing experiences through performing arts education.

In a typical season, the Phan-a-thon would take place in the month of May, prior to the beginning of the annual DCI competitive season. With the unprecedented outcomes as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 season presents an opportunity to align this virtual event with an existing organizational “spirit day”, our home show: Show of Shows.

The 2020 Phan-a-thon takes place on Saturday, June 27.

No gift is too small to help us accomplish our goal of 1,956 donors to the 2020 Phan-a-Thon!

Challenges are a way to create a friendly competition between different segments of donors. Donors are encouraged to choose a Challenge Group when they make their donation. Donors to the challenge group that raises the most money during the Phan-a-Thon get a FREE $10 gift card to The Phan Shop!

The Challenge Groups are:

  • High-Brass Phamily
  • Low-Brass Phamily
  • Percussion Phamily
  • Color Guard Phamily
  • Conductor Phamily
  • Phans & Friends

(Phamily includes alumni, current & former staff, or anyone else who wants to support the specific challenge group. If you love every section, choose Phans & Friends!)

Giving is easy! You can donate online with any major credit card before or during the Phan-a-Thon at phanathon.com. If you’d prefer to pay by check, please mail your donation to:

Phantom Regiment
420 N. Main St.
Rockford, IL 61103

Please note that the donation is for the Phan-a-Thon on the check or envelope.

Yes, of course! Your official gift receipt for tax purposes will be emailed immediately after you make your gift. Please consult your tax advisor for advice related to your specific tax situation.

Only gifts made through social media or through phanathon.com between June 22 and June 27 count toward the Phan-a-Thon. We celebrate all our donors year-round, no matter when gifts are made. The Phan-a-Thon is a giving day specific to a particular time as we celebrate Phantom Regiment and our impact across the world.

We will not be rebroadcasting. Please reference the schedule above for our major segments so you can tune in! You can watch much of our content on our YouTube Channel or on our Facebook page. We’d love for you to check it out!
