About Grateful Guitars

Grateful Guitars is a 501-c3 nonprofit that obtains world-class musical instruments for talented players who seek to carry on the tradition of jam band music into the 21st century and beyond. We identify musicians who thrive in live settings and we secure the gear they need to reach their fullest musical potential. Through the powerful connection between the skilled player and the highest quality instrument, our aim is to ensure that jam band music thrives for generations of live music fans.

GGF will also be rolling out a program this year that seeks to support music instruction in music schools to seed the next generations of talented players.

Every bid is a donation

We’re turning charity auctions and fundraising upside down and inside out.

A GOODBIDS positive auction has a great prize, and you can submit bids, but the big difference is that every bid is a non-refundable donation to a charity you care about.

That means that great prizes end up going for really low bids. And charities end up raising more money at the same time.

All you need to do is find an auction you like and place a bid. The money goes directly to the charity and you’ll get a receipt for your tax deductible donation.
