Your Impact

Empire City Men’s Chorus is deeply appreciative of all our donors.  We're grateful for every dollar, every kind word, and every minute of time that is given to us.  At a basic level, your donations directly enable our operating budget.  More importantly, however, is that your donations directly enable ECMC's Core Mission & Values, which include the commissioning of new music from modern composers, performances of in adventurous music in adventurous venues, collaborations with local NYC artists, and the empowerment of our shared communities.

Below are a list of ECMC's current supporters, examples of their contributions and impact, and links for one-time and (New!) recurring monthly donations.   You'll also find a description of the ECMC Champions program for our most fervent supporters--please have a look at the additional benefits they receive!
