Since you found yourself at this page on the website, you are either considering a donation, or you are about to make a donation. If you are about to make a donation the choir thanks you, it is deeply appreciated. Click here to make a donation. If you are considering a donation, please read below which is taken from the Message from the Director:
Like all performance arts organizations, we struggle mightily to raise the revenue necessary to present our concerts. Our annual budget is now approximately $50,000 and ticket sales to our concerts raises between $10 – 12,000. The rest must come from financial supporters.
This is nothing new. For centuries it was the churches, municipalities and monarchs that/who financially supported music. We would not have Bach’s music were it not for his employment by Leipzig and his positions in the city’s churches. Haydn composed his mature works while employed as the Kapellmeister for the House of Esterházy. Today, arts organizations must depend upon very modest state support (for The Choristers, approximately $2,000 per year), seek assistance from Foundations which are deluged with proposals … and upon people like you.
I encourage you to seize this opportunity to become a financial supporter of The Choristers and help us accomplish this important work. We are recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) organization. We pinch our pennies in every way possible so that we can accurately state that over 90% of a donation goes directly to our musical colleagues in the making of live music.
All donations are recognized in the programs for the next two concerts following the date of the donation. In addition, increasing levels of donations provide greater benefits.
