New York City Gay Men’s Chorus has built a reputation across the Big Apple and across the world for our cutting edge performances, for touching lives, and for being fearless champions of equality.

But, as a non-profit, we’ve only been able to have a huge impact on our community because of the thousands of volunteers, donors, sponsors, and other supporters who have been the lifeblood of this cherished organization since 1980.

Here are just some of the ways you can fund or help our cause, as well as some of the ways you may benefit from supporting us.
