The chorus accompanist is the only paid position. Other expenses include administrative costs, publicity, rehearsal space, concert venues and programs, music, and more. We enjoy sponsorship from the Berkeley Arts Council and have received two awards in their “Amplify the Arts” grant program. Additional financial support is obtained from community fundraising projects, private donations, concert ticket sales, and chorus dues, and we hope to seek possible corporate sponsorships. In the future it may be beneficial to apply for non-profit status as a 501(c)(3) organization, but we currently do not hold this status.
There are many great ways you can support the Berkeley Community Chorus! For specific information on any of the following, check out the "Upcoming Events" section on the homepage.
