The Central Kentucky Concert Band could not exist without Sponsors and Friends. We invite you to become a member of the Friends by making a donation. Your generous gift to the Friends will help the band continue its mission of providing free concerts throughout the Bluegrass region. Donations help pay for music rights, venue rentals, and other needs. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor with name recognition in our programs, please visit our Sponsors section.
Other ways that you can help the band are by direct donations using the Donate button below, by joining the Kroger rewards program and using your rewards card when you shop there, or by making a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) through your IRA.
If you are required to take a minimum distribution (RMD) from your IRA each year, then you can reduce the portion of your RMD that is subject to normal taxation by making a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) directly from your IRA to the band. If your RMD would bump you into a higher tax bracket and increase your Medicare Part B premium, then making substantial Qualified Charitable Distributions directly from your IRA could prevent that from happening Please consult your tax advisor for more information. If you are considering making a QCD to the band, please contact Jason Whitaker via email@example.com, in advance.
