Rackham Choir is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We are supported by member dues, private donations, state grants and corporate sponsorship, as well as ticket sales for our performances.

The work of Rackham Choir would not be possible without your support. If you share our love for the arts, a passion for music and a commitment to the community, we encourage you to support our choir with your donation.

Why do you need Support?

The Arts are largely run as non-profits and most classical music organizations, choirs and orchestras, rely on the help of their local communities to help finance them. The Arts and Music in the United States are largely privately funded and each organization has to ensure that their operations are supported financially. The Board ensures that budgets are kept. Volunteers and staff collaborate to find support through private donors, corporate sponsors and Grants for its fiscal health. The choir’s finances are audited yearly and public records are held. These can accessed through Data Arts (formerly Cultural Data Project)

How can I help?

You can support Rackham Choir by donating to our General Fund to help with the development of our organization and its operating support, or the Suzanne Mallare Artistic Fund to help towards our Rackham Choir High School Vocal Internship Program and Community outreach projects. Your donations may also go towards our productions where your sponsorship will directly benefit our musicians, production staff or make entire performances possible.

“The fund is to be used in part for promising young singers, to foster their musical growth through studies and opportunities to work and perform with professionals. Additionally, funds will be targeted for projects that resonate with the social and cultural issues prevalent in our neighborhoods.”
