Giving is Giving Back
As we mentioned, we have a lot of fun at the Martinez Music Mafia, but now that we’re a legitimate non-profit, we are committed to our mission to raise money to donate to worthy recipients.
How do we raise money? We beg for it, of course. We provide enjoyable music experiences and we ask folks to show their appreciation by giving to worthy causes, which makes them feel even better. Giving IS giving back – you’ll see what we mean.
The Board meets regularly to determine worthy recipients to whom we pass along our donations. Some events, we ask donations on behalf of specific charities – more often, we ask for donations to us (MMM) to distribute to causes we choose to support. We will also encourage folks to donate to the musicians we are featuring in our events, too.
Every donation is appreciated, no donation is too small or too big.
Donations over $500 will get a printed receipt from the MMM – for smaller donations, your credit card receipt is OK for tax purposes, but we will gladly generate something in “hard copy” if you request.
Here are the organizations that have been recipients of our donations over the past 24 months:
Loaves & Fishes of Contra Costa
Since 1983, Loaves and Fishes has served over 5 million meals to many thousands of hungry people throughout Contra Costa County. We have recruited thousands of volunteers and built an organization that has grown to serving over 149,000 meals, and distributing over 302 tons of groceries each fiscal year.
