Summer Concert: Braulio Barrera & Con Kimba Quintet

 Latin beats & Salsa from Bay area Afro-Latin percussionist’s new quintet 

Braulio’s passion for percussion instruments, including cajon, claves, bongo, conga and other African drums has taken him from composing jingles for various Peruvian commercials at age 19, to joining the music group and percussion school Acuarela Criolla, inspired by Peruvian cajon experts and touring through Europe, Costa Rica and the U.S. with the Peruvian singer Cecilia Barraza  Ensemble. Since moving to California in 2000 he has performed with various Peruvian dance companies and multiple salsa bands including Grammy-winning Pacific Mambo Orchestra and contributed to the Motorcycle Diaries soundtrack.  This evening Braulio condenses his Somos el Son Orchestra, to bring Con Kimba Quintet to the Garden.

IRS Guidelines for Gifts from Donor Advised Funds to Support MAGC Events

Thank you for your interest in giving to the Marin Art & Garden Center events from your Donor Advised Fund (DAF) or Family Foundation.

We sincerely appreciate your generosity and support!

To ensure your gift follows the current IRS guidelines for DAF/Family Foundation support of an event, we would like to share the below guidelines with you.

  • Raffle tickets, tickets to galas and other special events, auction items, and benefits conferred in connection with a DAF/foundation grant are not permitted.
    • IRS has specifically ruled that fair market value associated with fundraising events cannot be separated, a practice known as “bifurcation.”
      • For example, with Edible Garden, if the price of the ticket is $200 and the FMV fair market value (non-tax-deductible amount) is designated to be $50, the donor must pay from sources other than her DAF/foundation for the full value of the ticket ($200) and not just for the non-tax-deductible amount ($50).
    • We recommend you confer with your financial advisor to confirm if any of these examples of how donors may still use their DAF to support an event would work for you:
      • A donor could sponsor the event, and not attend, and pay fully out of the DAF/foundation.
      • A donor could sponsor the event using DAF/foundation funds and attend by purchasing an individual ticket through non-DAF/foundation funds.
      • A donor could sponsor the event, join the event as a guest of another donor/table guest, and pay fully out of the DAF/foundation.
      • A donor could sponsor the event and host the afforded number of people at their chosen level as long as they pay for the seats at the lowest ticket price ($200 for Edible Garden) outside of their DAF.
        • As an example, a $1,500 sponsor that covers 2 guests, could pay for their sponsorship with $400 from a different source of funds, and then give an additional gift of $1,100 out of their DAF.
