Many of our supporters ask: how much will actually make a difference? Our answer: any amount helps! Here are some ideas:
A $30,000 contribution would underwrite an entire commercial album recording project, release, and distribution.
A $8,000 contribution would provide facility rental costs for the entire season.
A $6,500 contribution would underwrite an entire performance.
A $4,000 contribution would underwrite a 3-4 minute a cappella commission.
A $2,000 contribution would provide fair wages for a professional Choral Artist for the entire season.
A $1,500 contribution could provide one full ride scholarship for a composer with a demonstrated financial hardship to participate in our PREMIERE|Project Festival.
A $500 contribution could allow us to hire an instrumentalist to accompany a choral work.
A $300 contribution could allow us to purchase a performance license, which provides royalties to the composers featured in our concert.
A $200 contribution could allow us to hire a sound recording engineer for basic concert recording services.
A $150 contribution could allow us to maintain our website for four months.
A $100 contribution could help us print concert publicity materials (posters and fliers).
A $75 contribution could help us maintain our annual membership with Chorus America, an advocacy and research organization for choirs like CAI.
