A lot to celebrate
The Austin Gay Men’s Chorus (formerly the Capital City Men’s Chorus) has almost tripled in size in the past five years. Show attendance grew more than 300% from 2017 to 2019. “Unbreakable” and previous productions have shown that our voices are strong, polished, moving, entertaining, and beautiful.
We now need power
We need to reach larger audiences. We need to pay our musicians better and to create higher production values. We need a larger profile in Austin and nationally. Like other organizations, Covid has challenged our ability to raise funds and find sponsors.
We’ll weather this challenge, but we need your help to do it.
You can help
As a sustaining chorus donor, you’ll help ensure that we can continue to change minds, transform lives and build community as we emerge from the pandemic.
Amplify our voices
How your monthly pledge would help:
1) Rent larger venues to accommodate our larger audiences
2) Better publicize our excellent productions – raising our profile and ticket revenue
3) Cover more costs for our singers so we don’t have to limit our membership to only those that can afford the personal membership and travel costs
4) Enable us to contract with high-profile and prestigious artists to sing with us
It can start right now with you. For the cost of a dinner out a month, you can move the AGMC forward from a local arts organization to a chorus with a national profile.
Donating is easy
Retail Match Programs
The Austin Gay Men’s Chorus is a participating non-profit organization in the Amazon Smile program. Please consider assigning the chorus as your preferred recipient and help us continue to provide the central Texas area with quality entertainment and outreach! You still pay the same price for everything you buy through Amazon, but a small portion of every purchase is donated to the chorus.
Randalls Remarkable Card
Randalls offers customers a way to direct the company’s donation dollars to your favorite non-profit organization. Since the program began in the fall of 1996 through the end of 2015, Randalls/Tom Thumb has donated nearly $48 million to over 8000 participating organizations. The more people who link their card to the chorus, the larger our share of their charitable giving becomes.
