Contribute to the Grand Rapids Women's Chorus
The chorus is a registered 501(c)(3), which means all of your donations are tax-deductible. Online donations are processed through PayPal's secure site.
Donations to our General Fund help defray a variety of expenses.
We pay annually for venue rentals, purchase of music for each season, contracting with local musicians who accompany us at our concerts, memberships in choral organizations that we support and that support us, like the American Choral Directors Association, and educational activities for our directors and singers, including events like an annual chorus retreat, a 2 day fall educational workshop for all singers to kick off our season.
Chorus members attend retreats at the beginning of each season. Retreats are held at the Franciscan Life Process Center in Lowell, were we break into small groups and start to learn both the language and music in the most difficult pieces added to our repertoire each year. Included in the retreat are educational activities that help us learn more about the meaning of songs that we are performing and educates us about cultures different from our own. And by renting space at the Center, we are able to support a local resource that brings its own value to our community.
The Grand Rapids Women's Chorus is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organizations, so donations are deductible based on tax laws. We have been able to sustain ourselves by staying an all-volunteer organization. We have no paid staff, but as the organization grows, our goals are to pay an Artistic Director and perhaps to fund one staff person to take on some of the administrative and fundraising activities currently handled by our director and board members.
All donations via the Internet are processed through PayPal's secure site. Donations are also accepted at each GRWC event, or by mail anytime. We value and need the continued financial support of our audience.
