Types of Donations
Unrestricted gifts may be used for any appropriate purpose but are usually used to pay concert production costs and to accomplish other goals, including commissioning new works, engaging in outreach programs at assisted living and similar facilities, and giving scholarships to qualified college-bound musicians from the East End.
Directed Gifts are restricted to a stated purpose, such as scholarships or a specific upcoming concert.
Honoraria & Memorials
An honorarium is a contribution to the Choral Society in honor of a friend or family member to celebrate special occasions or to recognize him or her by making a meaningful gift in his or her honor. A memorial gift is made in memory of a loved one to celebrate their life while expressing your sympathy to the family for their loss. The Choral Society will send a tasteful acknowledgment to the person you are honoring or to his or her family, informing them of your generosity, and you will receive a grateful acknowledgment of your gift.
We recommend that donors interested in making directed or memorial gifts, or honoraria should contact one of the Choral Society’s board members or officers beforehand.
