Ways to Give

1. Complete the form on this page. 

3. Mail a check to MBOTMA  PO Box 16408 Minneapolis MN 55416

4. Donate Stock 

Donating appreciated stocks, mutual funds or bonds to charity is an efficient way to contribute that can provide you with significant tax benefits. You can make a gift of appreciated securities to MBOTMA while avoiding capital gains tax, expanding your portfolio and/or obtaining a line of income.

Please contact us at for further information.

5. Make MBOTMA an IRA Beneficiary 

If you are over the age of 70½ and have an Individual Retirement Account (IRA), then a gift from your account may provide the most significant tax savings of any charitable contribution.

While you are eligible to make this gift starting at 70 ½, when you turn 72 you must take a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) from your IRA, and a QCD will count towards that RMD.

Please contact us at for further information.

6. Designate MBOTMA as an Estate Beneficiary

Grass Seeds Academy

​Grass Seeds and GS2 are MBOTMA sponsored youth workshops held in conjunction with the Winter Bluegrass Weekend. The groups meet for one session Friday night, two sessions on Saturday and one session Sunday morning. The kids then have the opportunity to show us all what they have learned with a Sunday concert. Donations  designated to Grass Seeds Academy help MBOTMA cover the expenses of offering this valuable program.

General Fund

Proceeds are used for festivals, mentorships, scholarships, workshops, classes, and other educational activities related to bluegrass and old-time music.
