Why Donate?

Tuition and tickets sales do not cover the cost of our programs. In fact, tuition and ticket sales income is only 48% of what it costs to educate our young singers and bring music to performance. As a non-profit arts organization, we depend on the generous contributions of members and supporters to our Annual Fund each season. Chorus Angelicus and Gaudeamus rely on contributions from businesses, foundations, grants, and individuals to provide our singers and our community with high quality music education and performances. 


We need to raise over $76,000 each year from contributions and grants – that’s about $1270 per student – in order to make budget.

Here are some examples of what your tax-deductible contribution can provide:

$ 25 provides sheet music to 2 singers
$ 75 provides a guest singer at a concert
$ 150 provides a chorister with a robe
$ 300 funds a scholarship for 1 child to attend camp
$ 600 funds 1 year scholarship for 1 Training Choir singer
$ 1000 funds 1 year scholarship for 1 Junior or Senior Choir singer
$ 2500 provides musicians for 1 concert performance
$ 5000 provides Joyful Noise with the opportunity to commission a new work

Please consider donating to our annual fund, either online or by replying to our direct mailings.

Your donation allows us to continue our mission to promote beauty and human enrichment for people of all ages through instruction in, and performance of, choral music.


Furthermore, your investment helps train outstanding young performers, and helps them to grow – both as musicians and as responsible, caring young adults.
