Like any other 501(c)(3)nonprofit arts organization, The Blues Foundation counts on the financial support of Blues fans. Donations and memberships are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law. Please take a moment to review each of the membership levels and look at the current membership incentives.
People often ask "What do I get by joining the Foundation?" You get the satisfaction of supporting the programs of The Blues Foundation--supporting the Blues Music Awards, the Blues Hall of Fame, the International Blues Challenge and the Keeping the Blues Alive awards, to name a prominent few. You become part of the Blues family that recognizes that each of us has the duty to support the music we love. That is enough, right?
Your membership is evidence that you understand that a blues fan must be the first line of support. You do this by becoming a member and participating in the activities of your local blues society, by purchasing the music of your favorite Blues artist and by going to see live music in the local club or festival. AND BY BECOMING A MEMBER OF THE BLUES FOUNDATION.
All members receive a membership card that allows them to vote for their favorite artists for the Blues Music Awards. This card is also recognized at Associated Blues Clubs where the member will receive discounts. Each member gets to vote for a member of the Board of Directors. Each member receives a window decal proclaiming them a Proud Supporter of The Blues Foundation." Higher levels of support bring additional premiums.
Check out the the various levels and current incentives below and join today. Not the joining type or already a member but want to make an additional tax-deductible charitable donation--you can do that below too. If you would rather send a check, that is fine too. Send to: The Blues Foundation, 49 Union Avenue, Memphis, TN 38103.
