Donuts Are Forever™ (established in 2007) is Rare Form's annual fundraiser and tribute inspired by the life and music of late producer James "J Dilla" Yancey. The name Donuts Are Forever™ (DAF) pays homage to J Dilla's last album, Donuts, released posthumously in February 2006, when J Dilla succumbed to complications from Lupus. Donuts Are Forever™ began as a celebration of life and the acknowledgement of a prolific music career from fans and music lovers.

This year's event, Donuts are Forever 14, goes down February 16, 2020 at Brooklyn Bowl in NYC. Pete Rock, JADALAREIGN, Nina Sol, Hasan Insane, and Tara are on this year's bill, and tickets are still available.
