Stock, Legacy, and In-Kind Donations

ZUMIX accepts gifts of stock and securities, as well as musical instruments and electronics equipment. These gifts are tax deductible. We can also work with you to prepare a legacy gift that will ensure top-quality arts programming is accessible for years to come.

Host a Party

You bring the friends and we’ll bring the music! Host a fundraising party in your home, a restaurant, or even at ZUMIX to introduce your friends and family to our work and the incredible youth we serve. Whether it’s a Wii tournament, a potluck dinner, or a Latin dance night, we’ll help you select a theme and entertainment that is sure to be a hit!

Questions? Send us an email.

Donor Advised Funds

Support ZUMIX through a donor advised fund (DAF), which gives you the flexibility to recommend how much and how often money is granted to specific nonprofits.

A DAF allows you to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction, and then recommend grants from the fund over time.
