Support Singing City
Annual Friends Drive 2016-17
Matching Gift Challenge
All gifts to this year's Friends Drive up to $5,000, received now through June 30, 2017, will be matched by a generous donor!
If you have made a gift to our annual Friends Drive, we thank you. If you can stretch just a bit more, your donation will be matched. If you haven't yet made a gift, please consider supporting Singing City's enduring mission of bringing people together and bridging differences through choral music. Dues and ticket sales make up only about 15% of Singing City's annual operating budget. The remainder comes from foundation and government grants and individual contributions. Through your support of Singing City you are saying that the power and beauty of choral music makes a difference in people's lives. Season after season, Singing City presents concerts of great choral music, nurtures young singers through the the SC Children's Choir and brings outreach performances to under served audiences in the region.
Corporate Matching Gifts
More than 2,000 companies offer employee matches to contributions. Check with your Human Resources office to see if a match is possible.
If you wish to make ongoing monthly payments, please e-mail Office Manager Cortlandt Matthews, email@example.com, or call 267-519-5322,
to make arrangements. As always, thank you for your support!

A Simple Gift
The Singing City Endowment and The Legacy Fund
You might want to make a gift to the Singing City endowment, but now is not the right time for you. Keep it simple. Make a bequest or deferred gift to the Choir. Your bequest will support the Choir’s endowment, which in turn will help strengthen the Choir’s ability to retain and attract the very best staff, provide ongoing support for Singing City in the Schools and the Singing City Children's Choir, stabilize the operational budget and establish a financial aid fund so that everyone in the choir can participate in retreats and go on tour.
This kind of generosity sustains programs, improves services, and impacts and enhances lives. One way to continue to make a difference and perpetuate your generosity is by making a charitable bequest, a simple case of including Singing City in your will according to your intentions. This is just as important as current giving, maybe even more so, because it sets an example for others to emulate. It can be as easy as setting aside a specific amount or percentage of your estate. Keep it simple: make a bequest to Singing City. Your gift will be gratefully received and wisely used.
If you would like to include Singing City in your planning, please contact Lauren Anderson at 267-519-5321 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
