PAYPAL



CHECK
Checks may be made payable to Community Music School of Springfield, and sent to CMSS at 127 State Street, Springfield, MA 01103.

GIFTS OF STOCK OR OTHER SECURITIES
By transferring stock to CMSS, rather than selling it, you can avoid paying some or all capital gains taxes and reduce your taxable income.

MATCHING GIFTS
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.

PLANNED GIFTS
Include CMSS as a beneficiary of your retirement plan or charitable remainder trust, make a long term pledge to give annually, or leave a bequest to CMSS through a will or estate transfer.  Leaving a legacy is an invaluable way of supporting the school. 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.

IN-KIND (NON-MONETARY) GIFTS
CMSS will gratefully accept donations of instruments in working order, office supplies, classroom furniture, art supplies and more on a case by case basis. Please see our wish list below. 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.
