And by us, we mean ALL of us!
We are officially a non-profit!
It’s taken 19 years of program building, 7 years of fiscal sponsorship (thanks BCAA!), 3 years of getting our ducks in a row, and another 1.5 years of writing, submitting, and clarifying our IRS application. Whew! That means every donation we receive is now tax deductible. This opens up important new opportunities for our community here in Boulder and our friends around the world.
Physical change is coming as well. The studio will be closed for two months this summer for an extensive renovation. Our landlord is kicking in beaucoup bucks for this major expense, but while the studio is closed, we will still have bills to pay and work to do maintaining our programs and building partnerships. So we are asking for your help. We hope you’ll join our Give to Grow Campaign in any way that feels right to you. Our goal for the 2018 campaign is $40,000.
Here’s how you can help:
- Make a tax deductible donation during 2018 Spring Give to Grow Campaign in April or May, and receive the following thank you gift:
$5,000+: Private house concert for your family and friends
$2,500-$4,999: ‘Own’ a set of marimbas for the summer
$1,000-$2,449: Sadza dinner for 8 family and friends at your home
$500-$999: Private lesson with the instructor of your choice
$250 to $499: A CD of your choice
Any amount: Our sincere appreciation and thanks
2. Invite your company to match your contribution, sponsor a Spring Event, or make a donation. (Our legal name is Moon & Stars Foundation, FEIN 82-1129217.) With corporate donations of $5,000 or more we will schedule a private performance or workshop for your workplace within the next calendar year.
We so appreciate your generous contributions and support, which are truly the only reason we have been able to come this far. Please help us as we transition and emerge in an exciting new stage of our development.
