Help Support The Harrisburg Gay Men's Chorus !
Traditionally, performers in the local arts communities look to donors for financial assistance, and the vitality and success of these artistic endeavors often depend on the generosity of their patrons.
Recent reductions in State and Federal funding have resulted in reduced or eliminated arts programs in our schools. In response to these cutbacks and in keeping with our mission of "making the arts accessible to all", our concerts are now presented FREE of charge to the public, providing our communites with no-cost musical entertainment suitable for all ages.
The Harrisburg Gay Men’s Chorus earns a substantial portion of its income through fundraising efforts and member contributions, but also relies on their friends and patrons to provide additional assistance. Your monetary contributions assist the chorus in purchasing music, technical and theatrical production costs, venue rentals and directors fees - an investment in our future, and in the future of arts in your community.
We welcome gifts of all sizes and thank you for your support. Your financial generosity assists us in providing the Central Pennsylvania region with entertaining, fun and vibrant gay-positive musical programs, and inspires us to continue our outreach programs. All donations are tax-deductible, with a letter of acknowledgment provided for each gift we receive.
