how-to-help
Support our Scholarship Fund

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 2018 we provided over $106,000 in scholarships—more than in any previous year! 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.

Buy a Cazadero Legacy Bench

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.

Purchase a Personalized Music Stand for Caz!

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.

Donate Stock

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

Donate Your Vehicle

Donate your vehicle for a tax deduction in support of Cazadero! It is quick and easy to donate a car, boat, RV or other vehicle with a single call to our offices. Your tax receipt reflects the market value of the vehicle. For more information contact the Center for Car Donations at 877-411-3662.

Make a Matching Gift

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.

United Way & Workplace Campaigns

You can make a donation to Cazadero Performing Arts Camp through the United Way or similar workplace giving programs. Federal and state employees also have workplace campaigns, so check with your employer!

Honor the Memory of a Friend or Loved One
