A Simple Gift

The Singing City Endowment and The Legacy Fund


Download bequest information


You might want to make a gift to the Singing City endowment, but now is not the right time for you. Keep it simple. Make a bequest or deferred gift to the Choir. Your bequest will support the Choir’s endowment, which in turn will help strengthen the Choir’s ability to retain and attract the very best staff, provide ongoing support for Singing City in the Schools and the Singing City Children's Choir, stabilize the operational budget and establish a financial aid fund so that singers don't have financial barriers to being members of the choir.


This kind of generosity sustains programs, improves services, and impacts and enhances lives. One way to continue to make a difference and perpetuate your generosity is by making a charitable bequest, a simple case of including Singing City in your will according to your intentions. This is just as important as current giving, maybe even more so, because it sets an example for others to emulate. It can be as easy as setting aside a specific amount or percentage of your estate. Keep it simple: make a bequest to Singing City. Your gift will be gratefully received and wisely used.


If you would like to include Singing City in your planning, please contact Lauren Anderson at 267-519-5321 or by e-mail at

Annual Friends Drive


Thank you to everyone who made a gift to our annual  Friends Drive campaign! Contributions to Singing City’s Annual Friends Drive are of crucial importance because they are used to support the operating budget of the Choir. Friends Drive gifts are spent throughout the year on operating needs such as our formal concert series, T-VOCE (Teen Voices of the City Ensemble), community concerts at care facilities and retirement homes, and to support our small but dedicated staff. These funds have the broadest impact on Singing City and its audiences.
