Donate Now!

As a registered 501(c)3 all donations to Locust Projects are fully tax deductible. 

GIFTS OF SECURITIES

Many people are choosing to avoid the high rate of capital gains tax through gifts of stock shares, with a gains tax spike of almost 40% on the horizon, we would love to talk to you about the direct and dynamic impact your gift can have on the mission and vision of Locust Projects! 

By donating stock rather than selling it, you will avoid paying capital gains tax - essentially saving 30% on taxes by excluding gains from your returns. As a further incentive if you donate a long-term holding and itemize deductions, you can also take a charitable deduction for the entire donation.

Giving is easy! Simply Download this Form and return a copy to development@locustprojects.org then provide your broker with a copy so they have our information. 

For questions, please contact Charity Von Guinness at development@locustprojects.org to learn more!

Fundraisers

SMASH & GRAB

Smash & Grab - Miami's longest running art world sporting event! Each year this lively, fast-paced Art Raffle event brings contemporary artists and collectors together at this fundraiser supporting Locust Projects programming. As each name pulled from the "hat" is announced, ticket holders are sent running to grab their favorite works of art "off the wall" before the next name called beats them to it.

SPRING FLING

Spring Fling is a highlight of Miami’s vibrant art and culture calendar, and centers on a silent auction of cutting edge artworks by leading contemporary visual artists. Partygoers can also enjoy our luxury auction showcasing design, fashion, wine, and experiences while partaking in delicious food and drink offerings.
