Do you love music? Do you want to make a difference? You can now make a direct donation to help support the McGill Choral Society-SSMU in its ongoing quest to bring music into the lives of choir members, as well as to the Montreal community.
The costs associated with running a choir of this size and caliber are tremendous. Your support allows us to pay for our expenses — including musicians, soloists, space rentals, concert program printing — giving choir members the opportunity to focus on what’s most important: the music!
How will my donation help?
Although MCS members pay fees and participate in fundraising activities, we rely on the generous support of the choir alumni and friends to provide a portion of our operating budget. Even a small donation can make a large impact.
Here are some ways your tax-deductible gift can make a difference:
• $25 will provide music and scores for one choir member
• $150 will pay for the piano accompanist for one rehearsal
• $300 will cover the cost of a concert musician or soloist
• $450 will pay for roughly one-fourth of the church hall rental
How can I make a donation?
You can either make a donation online or by sending a cheque in the regular mail. All donations greater than $20 are tax-deductible and will receive a tax receipt.
