The Conquest! Club

The most elite Trojan Marching Band support group. With a donation of $25,000 or more, you and your family may join the Conquest! Club and have your names inscribed on a plaque on the University's Wall of Troy. In addition to this honorable recognition, Conquest! Members also receive a 10-piece band performance (dates subject to availability) and an authentic mounted Trojan Marching Band helmet.


The Conquest! Club section of the "Wall of Troy" is located on Vermont Avenue between Exposition and Jefferson Boulevards. The Spirit of Troy has a limited number of columns, and expects them to be reserved quickly, so act soon!


Life Membership

The second tier of donations is Life Membership in The Spirit of Troy. With a donation of $10,000 and up, you and your family will receive a performance by a 10-piece marching band at your own private event, and an authentic mounted Trojan Marching Band helmet.


Chair Membership

The third distinction is the Chair Membership level, with a donation of $5,000 or more. This is the largest group of donors to the Trojan Marching Band. You will receive an authentic TMB helmet mounted on a wooden base, inscribed with your name.


Fundraising Endowments

Arthur C. Bartner Endowed Chair
The long-term quality of the Trojan Marching Band program hinges on recruiting the finest possible
replacement for Dr. Bartner. This endowment will ensure that a top-notch director can be identified as his successor.

The cost of attending USC has increased by 50% in the last 10 years. Over half the band receives stipends for participating in the TMB, made possible from donations to the scholarship fund.

In 2006, the Trojan Marching Band purchased a matching set of Yamaha instruments. Your
contribution to this endowment will ensure that future band members will have the opportunity to play on professional quality instruments in perpetuity.

The trademark of the TMB is the striking uniform and world-famous helmet. The last time the band
purchased all new uniforms was 1999. These uniforms will be replaced in 2010, and an endowment has been established to maintain the band’s appearance.

A portion of the band has traveled to every away game since 1987. The band relies heavily on donations from the Trojan family to help defray travel expenses.
