Donate to a Specific Fund
SDWC believes in the power of music and the power of women to change the world and we have three specific funds that will help us realize that vision, including a brand new fund established in 2019.
Support the Dr. Cynthia Lawrence Founder’s Fund
Dr. Cynthia Lawrence established the San Diego Women’s Chorus in 1987 with the goal of making social change through music. In conjunction with the celebration of Cynthia’s 81st birthday, a fund has been established to honor her deep and lasting legacy. The Dr. Cynthia Lawrence Founder’s Fund is devoted to expanding the reach and impact of the chorus by, (1) funding high-impact activities that raise our visibility and allow us to reach new audiences; and (2) engaging in additional outreach and efforts to ensure that diverse voices are present and active within our chorus.
The Fund is being launched with a generous matching gift of $10,000 from two of Cynthia’s close friends. Any contributions made to the Dr. Cynthia Lawrence Founder’s Fund will be matched, dollar for dollar, up to $10,000! Click below to learn more and donate to this new fund!
Support the Colleen Osburn Gratitude Scholarship Fund
Singing member Paula Tallal created the Colleen Osburn Gratitude Scholarship Fund in honor of her wife, who passed away July 5, 2014. The beautiful music and welcoming community of SDWC brought joy and comfort into their lives and it is our hope that this scholarship fund will enable women with financial barriers to join our chorus by paying for membership dues, music fees and retreat costs. Any amount you can give will help a woman add her voice and light to our sisterhood of singers.
Contribute to the Chris Allen Memorial Music Fund
Chris Allen was the beloved Artistic Director of SDWC from 1996-2014. Following his passing in 2016, we created the Chris Allen Memorial Music Fund to help us continue to create the highest-quality musical experience for all of our performances. Our music is our activism and these funds will help us reach the hearts and minds of our audiences in a powerful, polished way. Donations to this fund will help cover expenses such hiring talented local instrumentalists, holding vocal workshops for singing members and commissioning unique choral arrangements. Donate to honor Chris’ legacy today.
