About Us

The Auburn Knights Alumni Association (AKAA), currently with over 400 members, represents all Auburn Knights alumni from 1930 to present and has established a Memorial Scholarship Fund to support outstanding current band members annually. Contributions to this scholarship fund are tax deductible (see below) and can be submitted in honor of a deceased alumnus.

Each July the AKAA holds a reunion at which bands from eight decades perform a wide variety of Big Band music. The AKAA also provides extensive support to keep the current Knights well-equipped and performing quite regularly. For example, the Auburn Knights web site would not be possible without support from the AKAA.

AKAA Regular and Associate Member dues are $20 per year, which includes AKAA quarterly newsletters. To inquire about becoming an AKAA Associate member, contact Wade Johnson. If you’re an alumnus or current associate member, by all means please don’t forget to pay your annual dues!

For information or contributions to the Auburn Knights Memorial Scholarship Fund, please contact Scholarship Committee Chairman Fritz Siler. The Auburn Knights Alumni Association is exempt from Federal income tax under Section 501(c)(3) of the IRS Code. Donors may deduct contributions to the Association as provided in Section 170 of the Code. Bequests, legacies, devises, transfers or gifts to the Association are deductible for Federal estate and gift tax purposes if they meet the applicable provisions of Sections 2055, 2106, and 2522 of the Code.
