Donations to the New York City Community Chorus

Our chorus is founded on the principle that everyone should have a place to sing, regardless of their talent or their ability to pay. Our members contribute voluntarily as they are able. Concerts are also free by donation. No one is ever turned away because of lack of funds. 

Won’t you join our “angels” and the many wonderful private foundations and government agencies that contribute to our exciting experiment in healing the community through singing?

Leave your own musical legacy with a gift to the chorus in your will.

There are many ways to do this, depending on your individual circumstances and advisors’ recommendations. You can specify a dollar amount or a percentage of your estate. Other types of bequests include gifts of property, or gifts for particular purposes, for example, a gift that could only be used for paying soloists, or for other purposes that are important to you. 

We have given an example here, although it is not intended as tax or legal advice. We recommend that you consult professional advisors when considering charitable bequests.

Cash Bequest
To New York City Community Chorus, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, presently located at 35 West 8th Street, Suite 3R, New York, NY 10011, I give (the sum of ______ dollars) or (___ percent of the rest, residue or remainder of my estate), to be used for its general purposes.

Memorial Gifts

If you would like to remember someone who sang in the chorus, or someone who loved the chorus during his or her lifetime, you can make a gift in that person’s memory. It is a loving remembrance. 

You will receive a receipt for your donation. If you request, we also will write to family members or friends, telling them that you have made a thoughtful gift to the New York City Community Chorus in memory of their loved one. (Unless you request otherwise, the amount of your contribution will be confidential.)

In-Kind Gifts

Please consider whether you have property that you would be willing to donate that the chorus needs or skills it could use. If you are not sure what the chorus needs or could use, send us an inquiry and we’ll let you know.
