Ways to Give

There are many ways you can support Gifted Music School. With your involvement as a champion of Gifted Music School, we can accomplish the high-minded goal of providing music education for all children, regardless of socio-economic background. 
 
 
Although we are a 501(c)(3), as of February 22, 2021, we are in a process of reinstatement of our exemption status. We anticipate retroactive reinstatement and will update this page when that information is available. Please understand that donations are not currently tax-deductible.
 
 

Establish a Named Scholarship

Make outstanding music education accessible to a child in need by establishing a named scholarship. A minimum initial contribution of $2,500 is required to establish a named scholarship. To create an endowed scholarship fund that supports students in perpetuity, a minimum initial gift of $25,000 is required.
 

Gift of Stock and Real Estate

To make a gift of securities, bonds, mutual funds, stocks, land, or real estate, please email giving@giftedmusicschool.org.
 
 

IRA Charitable Rollover

If you are at least 72 years of age, you can transfer up to $100,000 (and up to $200,000 for married couples) per year directly from your IRA to Gifted Music School. Any amount you give is considered part of your minimum required distribution, and the best part is that your contribution is income tax-free!
 
Just remember, you must be at least 70½ years of age and you must transfer the funds directly from your IRA (does not apply to 401(k), 403(b), or other types of retirement plans). Here's how to make this gift:
 
Call your IRA plan administrator and let them know you wish to make a charitable distribution to Gifted Music School. When you make the call, here is some information you will want to have handy:
