Support the MMB
In an average year, our hard-working volunteer musicians contribute over 25,000 hours worth of rehearsals, concerts and work. But we still have to pay for our staff, music, equipment, upkeep on our building, etc. We can only do this with the donations made by our community members. Become a Band Sponsor. Your financial contribution will make a difference in your community! Your name, or the name of your business will appear in our programs for the remainder of the current calendar year. Any level of donation made to our non-profit organization is tax-deductible.

New $300 Universal Charitable Deduction
To help alleviate the economic devastation caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Congress has enacted the Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act). Among its many provision is a brand new universal deduction for charitable contributions. Taxpayers who don’t itemize may now deduct up to $300 per year in charitable contributions. Such deductions must be:
in cash (no property like old clothing), and
given to a 501(c)(3) public charity
Since this is a universal “above-the-line” deduction, taxpayers don’t have to file Schedule A (itemize) to claim it. Instead, taxpayers list it as an adjustment to income on Schedule 1 of Form 1040 and then deduct it from their gross income (along with all other adjustments to income) on the first page of their Form 1040.
A copy of the official registration and financial information may be obtained from the Division of Consumer Services by calling toll-free 1-800-435-7352 within the State of Florida. Registration does not imply endorsement, approval or recommendation by the state. REG #CH5931. MMB does not contract with a provisional solicitor. 100% of each contribution is received by MMB.
