Donate and Support LGCSF!

Whether supporting us as an individual, family, group, or business there are plenty of ways you can make a difference with LGCSF! How can you help? We have several suggestions below.

  • Advertise: Whether for business generation or personal expression, your ad reaches hundreds of people during each of our performances. Current ad information is here. Sizes include quarter page, half page, whole page, and front and back covers. Our ad space is very reasonably priced. If you have any questions about advertising, feel free to contact us by sending an email to advertise@lgcsf.org. We’ll be happy to help you meet your advertising needs.
  • Monetary Contributions: Whether making a one-time donation of $500, $250, $100 or a monthly subscription donation of $100, $50, $25 (or any other amount you can give), you support the day-to-day operations of the Chorus. You can donate online using the buttons to the left. We accept payments online through PayPal, or you can download our Donation Form and send in your payment. We accept Visa or Master Card, and checks or money orders payable to “Lesbian/Gay Chorus of San Francisco”.
  • iGive.com: Register with iGive and SHOP at brand name online stores through the iGive Mall. A penny a search and a portion of each purchase is donated to LGCSF. SAVE money with exclusive coupons/free shipping deals. Plus, when you shop within 45 days of registering we’ll donate an extra $5 to your favorite cause! Click here to start.
  • Silent Auction/Raffle Donations: Check your stock rooms, storage rooms, and closets for auction-ready articles to raise extra funds for things such as scholarships, purchases of new sheet music, and down payments on performance venues. Throughout the year, we auction or raffle off items to raise funds for the Chorus. Gift Certificates, gift baskets, works of art, event tickets, and just about anything else can be turned into an auction or raffle item. If you would like to donate an item, please contact us via voice mail at (415)-861-7067, or email us at manager@lgcsf.org. We’ll be happy to make arrangements for drop-off or pick-up of your donations.
  • Mention LGCSF at any of the three San Francisco Cole Valley Hardware stores, and the Chorus receives a donation of 10% of your purchase total. As a Community Partner with Cole Valley Hardware, we receive this stipend from all purchases made when someone mentions our name. We also are pleased to sell “Clearly Cole” bottled water (always donated!) at our Chorus events.

  • General Item Donations: We are always in need of office supplies, concessions supplies (plastic tumblers, stemware, and utensils; plates and napkins), and decorations (balloons, streamers, etc.). At each Chorus sponsored performance, we provide a concession table for the enjoyment of our patrons. Cast and New Member parties occur about three times per year. Our office is always in operation, interacting closely with our local community. Helping the Chorus defray the cost for these items by donating them yourself ensures that more of our incoming funds can be used towards the development of the Chorus’s musical programs. Please leave us a voice mail at (415)-861-7067 or email us at manager@lgcsf.org if you have items to donate. We’ll be happy to make arrangements for drop-off or pick-up.
