Individual Giving

How Can I Help? (Thank you for asking.)

It is not possible to put a price on music as sustenance in our lives, but music lovers intrinsically understand its value to our core.  Guild members deeply appreciate your patronage and are grateful for any support you can provide that allows us to continue to bring music into your life.  The Choral Guild is a resourceful and ambitious all-volunteer nonprofit organization. It is important for you to know that your dollars are used wisely and purposefully. With the exception of our marvelous Artistic Director, all administrative staff is volunteer.  We also strive to keep ticket prices low to keep our concerts accessible. In order to meet our expenses, we rely on ticket revenue, grants and corporate sponsorship and the generosity of individual  community members.
