You can make a gift online right now by clicking here. You can also mail us a check payable to Indianapolis Men’s Chorus, Inc. to P.O. Box 414, Indianapolis, IN 46206-0414.
The IMC is an exempt organization as described in IRS code 501(c)(3). Gifts are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law, and our federal tax ID number is 47-1689999.
Why does the IMC need my support?
The IMC could not survive without the support of our donors. Ticket sales and membership dues provide just 47% of our operating income, and donors provide essential, annual support for the operation of our volunteer chorus.
How will my gift be used?
Your gift today will have an immediate impact. It will support our mission to entertain, educate, and promote inclusive community through musical excellence. Gifts support a wide range of our needs including music, performance venue rental fees, sound equipment, and more.
Do you accept matching gifts from my company?
Of course! Many employers sponsor matching-gift programs and match charitable contributions made by employees. Some companies match gifts made by retirees and spouses. Send along your company’s matching gift form to make a bigger impact. Your gift may be doubled or even tripled!
Submit all claims under Indianapolis Men’s Chorus, Inc. (EIN 47-1689999) at P.O. Box 414, Indianapolis, IN 46206-0414. Indianapolis Men’s Chorus, Inc. is an exempt organization as described in IRS code 501(c)(3). Gifts are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
Are there other ways to give to the IMC?
Yes! An easy way to support the IMC is by designating us as a beneficiary for a percentage of your life insurance policy.
You can also include a gift, or bequest, for the IMC in your will. We believe that every friend of the IMC should have a will, and every will should have a provision for the IMC. Will bequests are:
- Flexible—you’re not making a gift until after your lifetime, and you can change your mind at any time.
- Versatile—you can structure your gift in many ways, including leaving a percentage of your estate to help support the IMC.
- Convenient—you have access to your assets throughout your lifetime.
Below is sample language for an unrestricted bequest to the IMC:
"I give, devise, and bequeath to the Indianapolis Men’s Chorus Inc., Indianapolis, IN, ______ percent of all the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate (or ______ dollars, property, securities, etc. described below) wheresoever located to be used for the benefit of the Indianapolis Men’s Chorus in such manner as its Board of Directors thereof may direct."
