In addition to one-time contributions, there are many ways to give:

Monthly automatic payments are a comfortable way to contribute, and their regularity makes it possible for Masterworks to plan for the year.

Stock transfers can provide very helpful tax benefits for you, the donor.

Many corporations Match the donations of their employees to non-profit organizations like ours, and they double your gift! Enquire if your company has a corporate Matching program.

Giving a legacy gift in your will ensures that your love of music will continue to inspire the community.
