Reasons to Support the CMC

[su_row] [su_column size=”1/2″]

The Cincinnati Men’s Chorus (CMC) is a voluntary, not-for-profit community chorus organized to provide the opportunity for gay men and gay-supportive men to sing together. Our Mission: Through our music, we strive for excellence; support and nurture our members; entertain our audiences; and work for justice, inclusion and harmony between the gay community and the community at large.

[su_spacer size=”15″] The chorus seeks to provide social and fellowship experiences that reach beyond the realm of musical purpose to deepen and enrich our lives. Further, we provide opportunities to present a positive image of the gay community to the general public by being identified as an organization of individuals who are making a contribution to the entire community. None of this would be possible without the generous support of our sponsors and donors.

[su_spacer size=”15″] Here are a few reasons for contributing to the CMC.

[su_spacer size=”15″] [su_accordion] [su_spoiler title=”Reason #1″ style=”fancy” icon=”plus-circle”]OUR MUSIC CHANGES LIVES. Every singer has a story to tell about how their involvement has made a positive impact in the world.[/su_spoiler] [su_spoiler title=”Reason #2″ style=”fancy” icon=”plus-circle”]You enjoy our unique brand of entertainment. It’s hard to put a label on the kind of shows we perform. It’s not really legit choral performance (at least not all of it!), and it’s not theater. Somewhere in the middle is our niche and it’s something you can’t find anywhere else in Cincinnati.[/su_spoiler] [su_spoiler title=”Reason #3″ style=”fancy” icon=”plus-circle”]You get a tax deduction. CMC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, so your donation is tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.[/su_spoiler] [su_spoiler title=”Reason #4″ style=”fancy” icon=”plus-circle”]Free tickets. By donating at least $500, you are entitled to receive complimentary tickets to our subscription series. (Accepting the tickets does reduce the tax-deductible portion of your gift, however.)[/su_spoiler] [su_spoiler title=”Reason #5″ style=”fancy” icon=”plus-circle”]Less than half of our operating expenses are funded by ticket sales. We depend on constantly shrinking grant funds, and generous donors to help us continue our mission.[/su_spoiler] [su_spoiler title=”Reason #6″ style=”fancy” icon=”plus-circle”]It feels good. You’ve learned from Avenue Q that, “when you help others, you can’t help helping yourself!” Ok, that sounds lame, but it’s true; Without a doubt the number one reason why we give is because it is the right thing to do and we feel so darn good about it.[/su_spoiler] [su_spoiler title=”Reason #7″ style=”fancy” icon=”plus-circle”]It’s really easy. You can donate securely online with your credit card or Google account. You can send in a check. We can even do an automatic deduction and spread your gift out over a 12-month period.[/su_spoiler] [/su_accordion] [/su_column] [su_column size=”1/2″]
