We love it when a gift to Caz is a win for us and a way to acknowledge our community! Here are a few ways that you can make a gift that makes a lasting difference.*
We take great pride in our scholarship program, which makes our camp accessible to all aspiring young musicians regardless of their financial circumstances. In fact, one in five of our students take part at Cazadero with the help of financial aid. In 2022 we helped 187 applicants with scholarship assistance, awarding over $93,700. Help us continue to bring this outstanding program to youth with financial need by donating to our Scholarship Fund. Donate Online now, or download our Donation Form and mail or fax it to us.
A legacy bench is a lovely tradition at Caz and a way to leave a lasting impression for generations to come. Built to stand the test of time—these custom-made redwood benches include a brass plaque with your personalized inscription and seat six people during concerts in our amphitheater. The $1,500 donation is fully tax-deductible. Download the Bench Donation Form or contact us to learn more.
Support Caz by purchasing one or more Manhasset music stands for the camp, and include your own unique personalized message! Share a quote or a memory, honor a loved one or yourself, knowing your message will be read every time a young Caz musician sits down to play! Download the Caz Music Stand Form or contact us to learn more.
You or your company can donate stock, stock options and other investments to Cazadero Music Camp in one simple transaction. A gift of stock owned for more than one year entitles you to a charitable deduction for the full market value at the time the gift is made. You may benefit by avoiding capital gains taxes and reducing income taxes, while your gift generates funds to support our programs. Contact us for more information
From coast to coast, Cazadero Performing Arts Camp is able to accept donated vehicles through our partnership with CARS. We use the proceeds from donated cars, trucks, SUVs, RVs, boats, motorcycles and even airplanes to help fund Caz programs.
Here’s How It Works:
- Call (855) 500-7433 or submit the secure online form.
- Schedule Your Free Pick-up: Within 48 hours, one of CARS Vehicle Donor Support Representatives will contact you to complete the donation and confirm your pick-up information. In most cases, your vehicle pick-up can be scheduled within three business days once the donation record has been completed.
- Receive a Donation Receipt. Vehicle donations are tax-deductible! An initial donation receipt is provided at the time of the pick-up. If the vehicle sells for $500 or less, donors are also mailed a thank-you letter within 30 days of the sale of the vehicle, which serves as a tax receipt. If the vehicle sells for more than $500 and the donor has provided their tax identiﬁcation number, an IRS Form 1098-C will be mailed to the donor within 30 days of the sale stating the amount of gross proceeds (the maximum amount of your tax deduction) received from your donation. For speciﬁc tax-related questions, please consult your tax advisor.
Caz has partnered with CARS (Charitable Adult Rides & Services) to help run our vehicle donation program. CARS is also a nonprofit and has been processing vehicle donations for more than 16 years. To learn more about CARS, visit careasy.org.
You can make a donation to Cazadero Performing Arts Camp through workplace giving programs such as United Way, Benevity, or YourCause. Federal and state employees also have workplace campaigns, so check with your employer!
Many employers offer a matching gift program which can double your gift. These programs not only match gifts given by employees, but often match gifts given by directors, spouses and retired employees as well. Contact your human resources department to learn more.
When you contribute a gift honoring (or remembering) a friend or loved one, we’ll send a lovely card announcing your gift. Just let us know on whose behalf the donation is made, and to whom the card should be sent.
