We rely on the generous support of people like you to help make the magic happen and to change lives. If you’ve left a concert moved, if you’ve danced in the aisles, if you’ve sung your heart out, if you’ve been inspired by our community outreach, or if your loved one has broken boundaries to stand on that stage, then consider making a contribution. Donations can be made online, by phone, by mail, or in person, and could be in the form of a:

  • One-time or recurring donation

  • Donation in honor of someone special.

Donations are 100% tax deductible as allowed by state and federal law (please consult your tax advisor).

You can make your gift go even further if your company participates in a donation matching program. Contact your HR department about your company’s program and let us know if you need any specific information.
