We are a non-profit, tax-exempt organization under IRS § 501(c)(3), Tax #83-0305493.
Some of our funding comes from dues, concert proceeds and other contributions from members.We also receive grants from various individuals and organizations including:
- Arts for All program from Teton County & the Town of Jackson
- Gertrude Brennan
- Community Foundation of Jackson Hole
- Heron Foundation
- IBM Corporation
- Jackson Hole Fine Arts Guild
- Robert S. and Grayce B. Kerr Foundation
- Life Enrichment Foundation
- Lightner Sams Foundation
- pARTners program from the Jackson Hole Cultural Council
- Wiancko Family Donor Advised Fund of the Community Foundation of Jackson Hole
Our major source of funding, however, is from YOU. With an annual operating budget of $20,000 we depend on your generous contributions to our organization towards General Operating Support.
Additionally, in an effort to ensure long-term, self-sustaining, independent financing, we have established an Endowment Fund, with a target of $250,000. The yield alone generated from this endowment would be sufficient to finance much of the Band’s operations, as well as modestly augmenting the principal each year to offset inflation.
Instead of a cash contribution, often there can be significant tax advantages by donating securities or other assets directly to the Band. Another creative contribution method is to include us in your estate plans. (Contact your accountant or your attorney for details.)
Furthermore, many companies have a Matching Gifts Program. Check with your employer to see if they can multiply the value of your gift through such a program.
Won’t you jump on the bandwagon? Your support of the Jackson Hole Community Band helps buy new music, keeps our performance trailers rolling, pays rent in our rehearsal space in the Jackson Hole Center for the Arts, and supplys our equipment and instrument needs, among many other things.
We thank you for any contribution you can make.
Remember that your donation is tax-deductible.
The Community Foundation of Jackson Hole is sponsoring this fundraising event for Jackson Hole non-profit organizations on the 2nd Saturday in September.Several of our members will be running in this event to raise funds for the Jackson Hole Community Band
and are seeking your sponsorship.
Through a generous donation to the Community Foundation by an anonymous donor, as well as other contributions to the matching fund, money raised through this event will be augmented by a matching grant, thereby magnifying the effect of your contribution.
Please consider a contribution to the Jackson Hole Community Band through Old Bill’s Fun Run, where your donation will be augmented by generous community philanthropists. Just list the JHCB on your donor form or contact us for more information.
