Support The Quire!

Supporting The Quire comes in many forms and we are thankful for everyone who has been a part of our journey for the last 25+ years! Below are some of the many way you can support the work of The Quire in support of our singing, LGBTQ community of inclusion and justice.

  • Support with a direct donation or purchase of merchandise
  • Purchase advertising space in our the concerts programs each season
  • Invest at the Sponsorship level to accelerate the impact of your support
  • Attend/volunteer at an upcoming event
  • Provide in-kind donations of meeting/concert space, professional skills, or equipment
  • Promote our events, our group, and our mission in your circles and via social media

    But the best way to support us is by joining us to sing! Open rehearsals are the first three rehearsals of each session (usually in September and January, similar to an academic calendar), and by attending any of those first three rehearsals, you are then welcome to join us after completing our new member orientation!

For questions about any of the above or wish to discuss other ways to support The Quire, please email

Sponsors & Donors of The Quire

The Quire has survived and thrived over the course of the last 25+ years thanks to the support of Members, their friends and families, the local (and not-so-local) LGBTQ+ community, engaged businesses, and our audience. We truly could not do what we do without the critical support these folks have provided and continue to provide and we recognize the generous support we receive each year with notes in our concert programs, in addition to listing our supporters on our website. See the current season below, or refer to the years listed in blue for previous years.
