Each year, BKCM hosts more than 200 concerts and community events, including two major fundraising opportunities, House Party and Open Stages. We are always looking for corporate sponsors, community partners, and individual funders for our events– if this sounds like you or your company, please reach out to our development team below!


Donor Advised Funds (DAF) are the fastest-growing giving method to manage charitable donations. Donor Advised Funds allow donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction, and then recommend donations to non-profit organizations from their fund over time. Please note that per the Internal Revenue Code, you cannot receive goods, services, or impermissible benefits, like membership benefits, as a result of a DAF gift.

Please contact your financial advisor if you would like to recommend BKCM receive a donation or contact your DAF directly and reference our EIN: 11-1532426
