Fine Arts Lunch Breaks debuts with live music in downtown San Bernardino
By Michel Nolan, The Sun
Just imagine — leaving your office in downtown San Bernardino and walking to a nearby restaurant for lunch, when you hear the rich dulcet tones of a cello-violin duo.
The beautiful live music seems to be coming from the open-air plaza at the Justice Center on Third Street.
OK, you say, “but how can this be?”
The music is a free gift to passers-by — a downtown midday arts experience to go with your soup and sandwich.
A welcome break in your busy day.
The San Bernardino Symphony is spearheading the new program, Fine Arts Lunch Breaks, which provides a fine arts experience in San Bernardino during workweek lunch hours. >>> Read Full Article
Keep the Music ALIVE through a Charitable IRA Rollover
The tax-free IRA Charitable Rollover has been made permanent!
A tax-free gift from your Individual Retirement Account (IRA) Rollover directly to the San Bernardino Symphony's fund at The Community Foundation will help sustain our ability to provide outstanding orchestral music, create opportunities for youth to experience the arts, and strengthen our community!
The Symphony will Benefit and You will, too:
- Each dollar counts toward your required minimum IRA distribution
- You can exclude up to $100,000 of your gift from your federal gross income resulting in lower taxable income
- You can make a significant gift without using cash or other assets
Here's how it works...
People age 70 1/2 or older can make a gift of up to $100,000 by transferring IRA assets (not pension or other deferred compensation plan assets) to the investment fund of a non-profit organization. If married, each spouse can transfer up to $100,000 from their IRA.
IRA Charitable Rollover gifts must be made directly from the IRA custodian to the Symphony's investment fund at The Community Foundation.
IRA Charitable Rollover gifts count toward your annual mandatory distribution from your IRA and do not result in recognizing taxable income on the distribution. As you recognize no income, they also do not generate a charitable income tax deduction.
For more information, contact Symphony Executive Director Dr. Anne Viricel at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (909) 381-5388.
