Sincere thanks for your interest in Supporting New Music Decanted.
We are a nonprofit corporation awaiting IRS approval for the status of 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.*
But we’re not just sitting idly by, twiddling our thumbs! (Do people actually do that?)
We’re making plans for 2019-2020 already! We’re figuring out which stellar new works of classical music to package together, whether by podcast, concert, or blog. We’re figuring out how to unpack it so that you, dear listener, get the inside scoop on the history, meaning, inner workings and sheer epicness of the music you hear.
But we need your help - to package the season, and then unpack the works… that we just packaged… (We really could have been more efficient there somehow, huh?)
Music is expensive. Rehearsing takes time. Podcasts don’t record themselves. And bringing a polished product to you is a work of love.
Thank you for considering donating. It means the world to us.
*We cannot provide financial advice, but from our understanding:
“If a nonprofit's application for 501(c)(3) status is approved by the IRS, donations made while the application was pending may be retroactively deductible.
If your nonprofit applies for exemption within 27 months of incorporation [we did], the effective date of exemption is the date the nonprofit was organized [August, 2018]…
However, deductible donations made while the application is pending are dependent on the IRS ultimately finding that your nonprofit is exempt.”

What that means to you? We’re expecting to be a 501(c)(3) sometime in 2019, so when you’re filing taxes in 2020 for 2019, we hope it will all be settled and you’ll just take your deduction like normal. Phew.
