The financial support of many individuals helps the Oratorio Chorale sustain the tradition of choral music. Ticket revenues, business contributions, and grants can cover only a portion of our costs. Almost a fifth of our annual budget comes from individual donors who support community arts organizations like ours.

We acknowledge gifts to the Chorale in amounts ranging from “Friend,” for amounts under $50, up to “Director’s Circle,” at $5,000, “Sustainer,” at $2,500, “Angel,” at $1,000, and several other levels. Every gift is welcome and helps us cover concert and general expenses.

We greatly value all contributions, at whatever amount best suits your circumstances. Gifts to the Chorale, a non-profit arts organization, are fully tax-deductible. All contributions will be recognized in our programs, and you will know as you listen to our music that you helped to make it happen.

Our Orchestra Chair program offers donors of $250 and up a significant opportunity to support and strengthen our programs.

Most of our concert programs combine vocal music with orchestral and instrumental accompaniment. This approach broadens our repertoire and gives singers and audiences the pleasure of experiencing many voices, both human and instrumental, working together to create beautiful sound.

Orchestra Chair donors receive special recognition in our programs; your name is linked with that of an instrumental section or soloist, and you are welcome to suggest a preference for your support.

We plan to add online donation capability to our website in the near future.  In the interim, if you purchase tickets through our online vendor, Brown Paper Tickets [], you can add a donation to the Chorale as part of that transaction.
