What is Giving Tuesday?

Giving Tuesday is a global generosity movement amongst millions of people that will take place on 1 December 2020, unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. Every act of kindness counts in the effort to build a more just and generous society! 

Why do WE participate in Giving Tuesday?

Musical Bridges Around the World believes in the healing power of music and art.

With the recent passage of the CARES Act, every U.S. household can donate up to $300 tax-free,
whether or not you itemize deductions. 


Gift of Stock

Donating long-term highly appreciated securities can provide you with significant tax benefits. When transferring stock directly to MBAW, you can claim an income tax deduction as well as escape capital gains tax.

Download stock transfer instructions or contact Julya Jara at julya@musicalbridges.org or 210.464.1534 to learn more.

IRA Charitable Rollover

If you are over the age of 70½, you can make a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) from your Individual Retirement Account up to $100,000. A donation transferred directly from your IRA to a qualified charity like MBAW generally reduces your taxable income by 100% of the amount you transfer. When you turn 72 a QCD will count towards your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD).*

*In 2020, the CARES Act waived the requirement for minimum distributions.

For more information, please contact Julya Jara at julya@musicalbridges.org or 210.464.1534,
or share our sample letter of instruction with your IRA administrator to help you make your charitable rollover gift to MBAW.

Donor-Advised Fund (DAF)

A Donor-Advised Fund (DAF) is a type of charitable investment account that provides an immediate tax benefit to you, and allows you to recommend grants to charities of your choice over time. An increasingly popular charitable vehicle, DAFs are an excellent way to both simplify your charitable giving and facilitate your strategic philanthropic goals.

Granting to MBAW through DAF is simple and can be done right here:


Please consult with your professional advisor to determine what type of gift is right for you.
