“This containment makes it ever-so-clear to me that music is what humans crave in difficult situations. This makes our jobs even more relevant. Free concerts in the town Square, the local college, and community churches have always reminded me that our audience recognizes the importance of slowing down and simply being in fellowship with music and musicians. I am so looking forward to those concerts and Salem Band’s unique role in our beloved community.”
We Need Your Help
Due to COVID 19, Salem Band May and June concerts are cancelled for the health and safety of our musicians and our audience. We plan to resume our summer concert series with our July 4th Stars & Stripes concert.
Cancelling concerts puts the band in a difficult situation, as our donations will suffer. With our 250th Anniversary season arriving in January, Salem Band continues to find ways to stay on track with our fundaraising efforts. As a historical community treasure, Salem Band is committed to presenting a grand anniversary celebration that includes the entire community — artists and audience.

CARES Act Donor Relief
Charitable Giving Incentives for Donors to 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Organizations
“In addition to facilitating direct financial relief to affected nonprofit organizations, the CARES Act also creates charitable giving incentives for donors to 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. Section 2204 of the CARES Act includes a new above-the-line deduction (universal or non-itemized deduction that applies to all taxpayers) for total charitable contributions of up to $300. The incentive applies to contributions made in 2020 and would be claimed on tax forms next year.
Section 2205 of the CARES Act lifts the existing cap on annual contributions for those who itemize, raising it from 60 percent of adjusted gross income to 100 percent. For corporations, the legislation raises the annual limit from 10 percent to 25 percent. Food donations from corporations would be available to 25 percent, up from the current 15 percent cap.”
