Annual giving

Together, we change lives.

Annual commitments combine to create real possibility. It’s right in our mission—connect people through charitable giving to enrich lives through singing.

We want to connect with you and connect you with others. Collectively, we inspire interest in young singers and turn that interest into skill, aspiration, achievement. How? Through the programs of the Barbershop Harmony Society and its chapters.


Among the resources the Society provides to expand our reach is licensed barbershop music. Many school music programs receive it at no cost, lessening the burden on their budgets.


You support Barbershop-style singing across the country, even in your own community because our Donor Choice Program allows you to direct up to 30 percent of your gift toward your home chapter.


You help underwrite camps and workshops that bring together students and educators to make new friends, hear demonstrations and learn to produce thrilling harmonies.


You help turn raw talent and enthusiasm into competition-ready skill and lifelong enjoyment for young people. Youth chorus competitions, collegiate Quartet contests, and training for chorus directors are just some of the ways your gifts can support tomorrow’s barbershoppers.

Every gift makes a difference, regardless of the size. We acknowledge every donor for their impact,  but we pay special tribute to donors through our membership groups:
