Donate to and Support the Bluegrass Heritage Foundation

Play It Forward kidsThe Bluegrass Heritage Foundation is a volunteer-run, non-profit organization that works year-round to help make live bluegrass music happen in north Texas, to put instruments into the hands of young people through our Play It Forward!® Free Instrument Lending Program, and to provide scholarship assistance to young people who want to attend bluegrass and acoustic music camps and programs.


People often ask, “how may I help?”  You may help in any or all of these ways:

Cash donations.  You can make a one-time donation or set up a monthly recurring donation through your bank “bill pay” function or PayPal.  We’ll send you a donation receipt for the amount you donate each year.  You may also mail your donation to us at P. O. Box 25032, Dallas Texas 75225.

When a Memorial or Honorary donation is received, we will send a personalized letter to the person or family indicated, notifying them of your thoughtful gift but not revealing the amount.  (You may also remain anonymous.)  If you prefer, we can send the letter to you so that you can deliver it in person.  Our Memorial Giving and Honorary Donation form page is here.

New and used bluegrass instruments and cases We put instruments into the hands of young people nearly every month through our Play It Forward!® Program.  Donate your gently-used, playable fiddle, mandolin, guitar, banjo, or dobro today!  Just contact us and we’ll work out the details.

In-kind donations We always need interesting items to use as raffle or silent auction prizes at our events.  These can include merchandise, gift cards, airline points, professional services, dining experiences – and much more!  Use our In-Kind Donation form page, download the PDF form, or contact us to donate today.

keeping the doors open isn't free. All contributions are greatly appreciated.
