General Support Information

Support the Mastersingers

 

As a registered nonprofit organization, San Antonio Mastersingers depends on our community to support every aspect of our work. Ticket sales and performance fees cover only about one third of our expenses, so your donations each year are absolutely essential to produce a full season of high quality artistic work, while sustaining and expanding our community partnerships and educational outreach programs.

 

There are many ways you can support the Mastersingers. Whether it’s by making an annual fund gift, sponsoring a program, or leaving a gift through your estate, you will be a vital part of making sure the Mastersingers endures and thrives as one of the nation’s premier and oldest symphonic choruses.

 

Ways to Give

 

ANNUAL FUND

The Mastersingers Annual Fund is the lifeblood of our organization. This crucial general operating support is made up of gifts of all sizes, by community members ranging from longtime Mastersingers patrons to first-time concert attendees. If you have been moved, entertained, or inspired by the music we create, please consider making a gift today to help ensure that we can continue to present the highest quality and most impactful musical experiences for many years to come.

Concert underwriters have provided direct funding for the artistic program of their choice, often because of their own personal connection with the work. Season sponsorship packages can be customized and include attendance at receptions, premium visibility opportunities, and concert tickets.

 

 

PLANNED GIVING

By including Mastersingers in your estate planning, you ensure that innovative choral works will continue to be created and performed in San Antonio and around the world.

 

When Mastersingers first formed in 1944, we envisioned sharing with you our musical gifts that are inspiring, encouraging and sublime.  We view our chorus as a symbol of community with the power to open hearts and transcend human and cultural differences.  If you have that same vision for Mastersingers, then a planned gift can become your ultimate demonstration of commitment and support.  You can help us plan for our future — and your own — through this creative approach to philanthropy and estate planning which allows you to make a significant contribution to Mastersingers while also enjoying tax benefits for you and your family.

 

A number of Mastersingers’ loyal supporters have informed us that they have made a provision for Mastersingers in their estate plans.  These gifts range from outright donations, percentage of residual[MMW1] , specific gifts of property, and other forms of estate plans.  Planned gifts ensure that your legacy of support will continue for generations to come.
