Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Is my donation tax-deductible? 

A.  Your donation may be tax-deductible as we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  Please consult with your tax preparation specialist or accountant for information on your specific situation.

Q. If I am making an online donation, how do I know how much of my donation is being credited?  

A.  We use Square as our online donation platform.  Square takes a minimal processing fee, just as would occur in a retail setting.  Currently, these fees average under 5%, ensuring that at least 95 cents of each dollar donated goes toward our student musicians and performers.  If you would like to ensure 100% of your donation is credited to the East Lake Silver Sound, please follow the instructions to donate by check.

Q.  I am a local business owner.  Can I donate services or items that the East Lake Silver Sound needs in lieu of a cash donation?

A.  We love partnering with local businesses!  Please email president@eastlakeband.com to discuss how we may be able to work together.

A.  Thank you!  Please email president@eastlakenband.com, cc: accounting@eastlakeband.com to discuss your company's requirements.

 

Q.  My company provides a charitable grant/donation to a qualified 501(c)(3) when I volunteer a minimum number of hours with a non-profit.  How can I use this program to secure a grant to the East Lake Silver Sound?

A.  Please send an email to accounting@eastlakeband.com to discuss.  Our Treasurers have familiarity with this process.
