Planned Giving

The generosity of individuals, corporate sponsors and foundations provide over 60% of the BGMC’s annual revenue. Gifts may be made however is most convenient for you, online, via mail at 95 Berkeley Street, Suite 410, Boston, MA 02116 or by telephone 617-542-SING. Monthly pledges from your credit card or bank account can be easily set up online or via the office.

Your financial support allows us to sing beautifully, perform in great concert halls and theaters, present guest artists and choruses, serve our community, tour to new places, and support our volunteer members. Your gift — in whatever amount is appropriate for you — is greatly appreciated. The power of our voices will amplify the value of your gift many times over, helping to create a world that values its gay and lesbian citizens.

Bay State Performing Arts Inc, d/b/a Boston Gay Men’s Chorus, is a 501(c)(3) not for profit arts organization, meaning that your donation is tax deductible as allowed by state and federal law.

The BGMC is able to accept gifts of stock, bonds, EFTs, and mutual funds. Please contact your financial advisor to find out how these types of gifts may benefit you. For example, a gift of stock owned for more than one year entitles you to a charitable deduction for the full market value at the time the gift is made. Your gift of stock may provide an opportunity for tax savings while generously supporting our organization.

If you would like to discuss a gift of stock or other appreciated securities, please contact the BGMC office for more information and for the appropriate forms to facilitate transferring your gift.

If you work for a company that matches employee gifts to cultural organizations, your donation might be doubled. If you already have a matching gift form or web application, please follow the instructions, fill it out and return it to us. If you don’t know if your company has a matching gift policy, check with your Human Resources department.

For more information please email the Executive Director.
