The Minnesota Blues Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We are run completely by volunteers.
All monies raised through donations or from annual membership dues are used in accordance with our Mission Statement to research, document, teach, interpret, provide learning opportunities for, enhance and celebrate the blues genre of music in the State of Minnesota.
An Employer Matching Gift program enables corporations and their employees to collaborate in their charitable giving. An increasing number of corporations or corporate foundations are providing Matching Gift programs for their employees, directors, retirees, spouses/domestic partners and selected agents who meet performance qualification criteria.
How does it work? The employee selects a charity of their choice, within the corporation’s giving guidelines, completes one part of their employer’s application form and submits the form with a donation to the charity. Once the donation is received, the charity completes the second part of the application and returns it to the corporation. Within a period of three months to one year, upon approval, the corporation will match or double match the employee’s gift.
How do I obtain an application form? Each corporation or corporate foundation has specific qualifications for eligible charities. To find out more about your employer’s Matching Gift program, ask your Human Resources personnel for a Matching Gift Program application form and the company’s guidelines for participation.
