INVEST IN OUR YOUTH
Your tax deductible contribution will help remove the barrier to entry for underserved students and students of color so that all youth in our community can have equal opportunity to receive world-class music instruction. Individuals as well as corporations and foundations are invited to make an investment in the students we serve. To make an individual donation click the link below.

OTHER WAYS TO GIVE
Contributions of stock provide valuable support to Key to Change and can also provide significant tax benefits to the donor. The value of your transfer of stock is calculated as the average between the high and low quotes on the day your stocks leave your control. For example, on July 1, when you mail a stock certificate for one hundred shares to Key to Change (or the day your broker transfers the stock into the Key to Change investment account), the high is $24 and the low is $20. At the average price of $22 per share, your gift is worth $2,200.
If you have owned your stock for at least one year (appreciated stock), you will receive a tax deduction for the full value of its appreciated value at the time of your donation. A transfer of appreciated stock avoids paying capital gains tax and you do not pay commissions for selling the stock. (Brokerage fees are paid out of your donation, however.) These advantages make it possible to give larger gifts than if you give only donations of cash.
