Let us plan to make this global Marathi convention a grand event that provides a world-class experience for all the attendees. The success of this event will require a lot of patronage and support from the community. While our team of volunteers is working diligently on the planning and execution of this grand event, a strong financial support from our community will go a long way to make this event a success. Considering this, we have launched the BMM2019 fundraising activities in full gear.

A few of our community members have leveraged their Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) from their IRA to make donations to BMM2019 (DFWMM dba BMM2019), which is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. We wanted to share this information with everybody so that you can take advantage of this, if applicable to you.

Kindly see the IRS link for additional information on using part of the RMD for the convention donation.

Also, please consult your CPA to assess your individual tax situation.

This message is a call for patrons like you to provide support through your generous donations for this endeavor.

The BMM2019 team has set up the following methods for you to donate:

  1. Personal Checks can be mailed to Rahul Karnik, 542 Waterview Dr, Coppell, TX 75019. Please make your checks payable to  BMM2019. Please ensure that you provide your Email Address, Mobile Number, and Mailing Address either on the check or separately.
  2. Pay by email:  Use your Bank’s mobile app or online service to send money by email to donations@bmm2019.org. Most banks have a feature where you can send money to an email id. For BMM2019, that email id is donations@bmm2019.org. Please make sure you write your name and email address in the memo section.

BMM2019 is a tax-exempt organization as described in Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Some portion of your donations are tax-deductible; however, we recommend that you check with your Tax consultant for the exact amount you can claim as deductions for tax purpose. We will provide you a receipt with your tax eligible amount for the said purpose. If you have any further questions or comments, kindly reach our fundraising team at FundraisingTeam@bmm2019.org.

We look forward to your support!!
