Ways to Give

Thank you for taking the time to explore how best you can fulfill your charitable giving goals for Bay Chamber Concerts and Music School. There are many ways you can ensure success and accomplishment in fulfilling our mission of enriching lives in our community through high-quality performance, music education and community engagement programs and services.

We welcome your investment:

Gifts of Stock
Appreciated stock or other securities may offer considerable tax benefits, entitling you to an income tax charitable deduction for the fair market value of the securities on the date of your gift. This allows you to give a gift that benefits Bay Chamber, costs you less, and may help you avoid a capital gains liability.

Gifts from Donor Advised Funds
Gifts from your Donor Advised Fund provide essential support to emerging needs of Bay Chamber, including tuition assistance for aspiring students, concert investment, professional development for faculty, and operations.

Matching Gifts
You or your spouse/partner’s employer may offer an employee matching gift program supporting your charitable giving and increasing the value of your gift. Please check with your employer and request a matching gift form to include with your gift to Bay Chamber.

Sponsorship Gifts
Sponsorships provide you with the satisfaction of a world-class performance partnership while receiving exclusive promotion associated with a wide variety of sponsorship opportunities.

Student Scholarship Gifts
You have an opportunity to ensure access for all to musical performance and education by dedicating your gift to providing concert tickets or music lesson financial aid.

Gifts of Goods & Services
We are pleased to accept appropriate non-monetary donations. Please contact Bay Chamber in advance to confirm that we are able to accept your donation.

Gift Planning Opportunities
Because your charitable giving goals are unique, Bay Chamber invites you to schedule a confidential conversation about structuring a transformational gift that will benefit you, your loved ones, and all who benefit from Bay Chamber programs today and well into the future.

Vehicle Donation
Bay Chamber is registered with V-DAC, an organization that provides easy, turn-key vehicle donation programs for any charity, church or school. V-DAC picks up the donated vehicle, brokers the sale of the vehicle and sends the remaining cash sum to Bay Chamber, minus very low processing fees. Depending on the value of the vehicle, Bay Chamber could receive as much as 71% of the vehicle gross sales price. This is a great way to support Bay Chamber and recycle older vehicles at the same time. Additionally, donors are entitled to receive a tax deduction equal to the sales price of the vehicle. Simply click on the V-DAC icon in the sidebar to make a vehicle donation.
