Many workplaces will honor employee philanthropy by matching individual charitable donations made by their employees. It is a great way to increase the impact of your support.
CMSS will gratefully accept donations of instruments in working order, office supplies, classroom furniture, art supplies and more on a case by case basis. We are not able to accept donations of pianos, organs or sheet music due to space constraints. For information regarding tax deductions and acknowledgments for In Kind gifts, please see IRS publication 1771opens PDF file (pdf). Please note that if you require a valuation for your donation, you should seek an official appraisal prior to contacting CMSS, as recipients are prohibited from providing a valuation.
Leaving a legacy is an invaluable way of supporting the school. Planned gifts can include bequests through a will, charitable remainder trusts and other estate transfers. CMSS is grateful to those generous individuals who have chosen to include the Music School in their estate plans. We would be pleased to know about those intentions in advance so that we may acknowledge their generosity.
