Ways to Support AAYC
Make a Donation
Add Your Voice to Ours!
The Ann Arbor Youth Chorale has unique opportunities to bring beauty and lasting value into the lives of our young singers and the lives of people who experience our music. However, AAYC is not able to do its meaningful work without the generosity of our faithful donors. We rely on the gifts of individuals like you, who understand and value the extraordinary quality of our music, to help us maintain our forward momentum as we grow and flourish.
Donations to the Annual Fund support the overall work of the Ann Arbor Youth Chorale. This fund provides for necessary day-to-day operations, such as music, folders, singer scholarships, salaries for our conductors and staff as well as other operating expenses. Your gift ensures that AAYC is able to continue its mission of "transforming young lives... through music education, performance of quality choral music, and collaboration at the highest level of artistic expression – all in a safe, inclusive environment."
Donors receive recognition in our concert programs at the following levels:
Benefactor $2,000 and above
We are happy to receive contributions that support specific initiatives such as scholarships, music library, concerts, and our travel fund.
Many companies will match a percentage of their employees' donations. There are also companies that will donate money for your volunteer hours. Please consider contacting your employer and see if they offer matching gifts.
We greatly appreciate in-kind donations of goods or services. Your partnership allows us to keep resources focused on providing a quality experience for our choristers.
Make a Gift of Securities
If you have appreciated stocks, bonds or mutual fund shares, you may want to give them rather than a cash gift. Ann Arbor Youth Chorale has an account with Fidelity to handle this type of gift. Please consider checking with your financial advisor regarding potential benefits to you for this type of gift.
