Individual Donations can be made in one of two ways:
1. By printing out a donations form and mailing in a check
2. Donating online, using PayPal (see below)

The San Francisco Lyric Chorus is chartered by the State of California as a non-profit corporation and approved by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service as a 501c(3) organization. The Chorus may accept charitable donations, and donors may claim those donations as tax deductible.The Chorus depends upon contributions for about 40% of our normal operating budget. Monetary gifts of any amount are most welcome.

Adopt-a-Singer Program
In addition to soliciting general donations, we have a fund-raising program called “Adopt-A-Singer”. For $30, you can make a gift to the Chorus in support of a chorus member of your choice. For $100, you can be a sponsor of an entire section (sopranos, altos, tenors or basses). For $150, you can be a patron of our esteemed Music Director, Robert Gurney!

Scholarship Fund
We also have special funds to pay for particular needs. The Scholarship Fund helps cover the membership dues ($150 per trimester) of occasional chorus members who have such limited financial means that they cannot afford to pay dues (1-3 chorus members generally).

Musicians Fund
The Musicians Fund helps cover the expense of hiring professional intrumentalists and singers, when we perform works which require us to hire such musicians. Normally, we spend $400-$600 for each such musician (2 rehearsals, 2 performances).

Unless you specify otherwise, we list all donors in our concert program for one year. For further information, e-mail or call (415) 721-4077.
