Guarantor News and Special Events

Thank you for your loyal and generous support in 2016!

At this festive time of year, we want to express our sincere appreciation to our loyal Guarantors, for your sustaining support of The Bach Choir. Your annual support helps to provide for the basic needs of The Choir and our performances and programs. Your gifts ensure that future generations will have opportunities to enjoy and experience the musical excellence for which The Bach Choir is loved and respected.

Best wishes to you and your families for a healthy and happy holiday season and wonderful New Year!

Consider an End of Year Gift
Your end of year gift to The Bach Choir supports our work, our outreach programs and expresses your appreciation to the members of The Bach Choir, who have dedicated more than 10,000 volunteer hours each year. Perhaps you can make a donation to honor of a loved one or to celebrate a special event. Donate here.

Remember that you can now make a contribution through your IRA…
A special opportunity to give to The Bach Choir through your IRA has been extended—permanently!
The IRA charitable rollover is back and this time it’s permanent. A gift to The Bach Choir though your IRA can:
• Be an easy and convenient way to make a gift from one of your major assets.
• Be excluded from your gross income: a tax-free rollover.
• Count towards your required minimum distribution.
• It may also help you maximize your allowable tax deductions for 2016.
Contact your financial advisor for advice about how a rollover could benefit you.
