The Elville Center for the Musical Arts!

By Steve Elville | Posted in Estate Planning, Staff Blogs | 1 Comment



The attorneys and staff of Elville and Associates are proud to announce the launch of the firm’s new charitable organization – The Elville Center For The Musical Arts. The new Elville Center will be a 501(c)(iii) non-profit corporation that will partner with local and regional businesses such as Music and Arts, schools, and other non-profit organizations to provide music instruments, music instrument rental, music lessons, and participation in music-related activities to and for children of all ages throughout Maryland and the mid-Atlantic region. The purpose of the Elville Center will be to improve the quality of life of children of all ages by providing them the opportunity to learn music theory and application, and experience cultural events related to the musical and creative arts; and to use music and the promotion of music-related activities to transcend social and economic divisions.

As most of our clients are aware, Elville and Associates is an active sponsor of the arts through its support of WBJC classical radio and performances. The firm also promotes awareness of the arts by providing clients with opportunities to attend events at The Kennedy Center, The Strathmore, Modell Lyric Opera House, and other venues. Although Elville and Associates has traditionally supported and promoted music in the classical genre, student participants in Elville Center-sponsored educational activities will have the ability to choose their own musical path based on their own individual preferences, talents, and goals.

Pending Internal Revenue Service approval of Elville Center’s 501(c)(iii) status, Elville and Associates will officially begin promoting and receiving donations for the Elville Center as of June 1, 2014. In addition to individual and corporate donations, Elville and Associates will begin its own contributions to the Elville Center. It is the hope of Principal, lead attorney, and founder of the Elville Center, Stephen Elville, that this charitable initiative will capture the imaginations and enthusiasm of our clients, business partners, and the community at large culminating in the fulfillment of many dreams and a continuation of the music.

    Mr. Stauffer,

    I may be interested in donating a Bundy Resonite Selmer clarinet in good playing condition. What is your interest and what are the tax advantages, if any?
