7. How You Can Help

Real charity doesn't care if it's tax-deductible or not . --Dan Bennett

A. Money

Dues provide only a small fraction of the BGMC budget. Likewise, income from ticket sales brings in only about 1/3 of our budget. The hard fact is that dues and ticket sales alone do not bring in enough dollars to purchase music, pay our Artistic Director and accompanist, rent our office, advertise our concerts, record our CDs, and sustain our work and mission.

Our treasurer can advise you on how to make a tax-deductible contribution or establish a planned giving program.
