Are your membership dues tax deductible? What about festival tickets? Read the FAQ.

We are beginning a new era. The IBMA has become a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. That means that, from this point forward, your donations to IBMA are now tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by the law.  When you give to the IBMA, the Bluegrass Trust Fund and the IBMA Foundation, you make the bluegrass world better with your support.

Support IBMA. It empowers bluegrass worldwide through advocacy, professional development, and renowned programs. Just look at what IBMA has had a hand in creating: World of Bluegrass, the International Bluegrass Museum, the Bluegrass Hall of Fame, the IBMA Awards, the Bluegrass Album Grammy, the Billboard Bluegrass Chart, and Leadership Bluegrass. And of course, the Bluegrass Trust Fund and the Foundation for Bluegrass Music (now the IBMA Foundation).

Support the Bluegrass Trust Fund. It is the safety net for our bluegrass community, giving direct aid to bluegrass professionals when they’re faced with emergency need. Through the generosity of bluegrass people, the Trust Fund has given over $800,000 in direct aid.

Support the IBMA Foundation. It ensures the future of bluegrass, getting instruments in the hands of kids - plus more. The Foundation promotes bluegrass education through school programs, grants, and teaching materials for all ages.

Please give as you're able to the IBMA, the IBMA Bluegrass Trust Fund, and the IBMA Foundation.
