Do you want to help make the music happen? The Washington Chorus relies on you—our patrons, community members, and friends—to continue to bring the power and beauty of choral music to audiences new and old, and to nurture the next generation of choral singers and supporters. There are several ways you can play an important role in sustaining our concert programs and education/outreach initiatives:
Ticket revenue covers less than 40% of our overall expenses, and we depend most especially on donations from individuals.
When you join the FRIENDS’ CIRCLE with a gift of up to $999, you help to meet the immediate needs of the Chorus and enjoy special recognition and opportunities throughout the season. Gifts can be made in easy automatic monthly installments.
When you become a member of the CONDUCTOR’S CIRCLE with a gift of $1,000 or more, you are eligible for an array of exclusive benefits in gratitude for your substantial support of the Chorus. Conductor’s Circle members enjoy post-performance events, tours, exclusive event opportunities, and more. Gifts can be made in easy automatic monthly installments.
As an outward expression of the dedication and commitment of our singers, staff, and Board of Trustees, TWC gives back! The majority of our 200 volunteer singers, board, and staff support TWC financially on top of donating their time and talents. Gifts can be made in easy automatic monthly installments. If you are a Singer and wish to further support the mission of the Chorus, join the ARTISTS' CIRCLE today!
Did you know that many employers offer matching opportunities for your donations? Increase the impact of your gift by inquiring about your company's matching offerings, and submit their paperwork along with your donation to the Chorus. TWC staff will take it from there and confirm when your donation has been matched!
Dianne Peterson Fund for Creative & Innovative Programming
The Board of Trustees has created the “Dianne Peterson Fund for Creative & Innovative Programming” in honor of Executive Director Dianne Peterson, who retired in 2016 after more than thirty years of leadership of the Chorus. A national leader in choral music management and the longest-serving chief administrator of a major American chorus, Dianne led TWC to become one of the region’s premier arts organizations and one of the nation’s largest budgeted choruses. The Fund’s mission is to enable the programming of works that are ambitious in scope and may be made possible only with the help of the special Fund to support them. It is our hope that you consider participating in this lasting tribute to honor Dianne and perpetuating the unique qualities of TWC, which she so tirelessly built up over her decades with the organization.
