We Rise Again

Each season, the New Jersey Youth Chorus asks for the support of our community to share the joy of choral singing with our choristers and audience. But, like for many other organizations, this season is unlike any we have experienced before. Our rehearsals are online and our concerts are virtual, but our community connection is as important as ever. We are more than choral singing- we are a home, a safe haven for our choristers- we are a family. 

Traditionally, tuition and concert ticket sales cover about 75% of our season's budget. This year, due to Covid-19, with reduced tuition rates and the lack of in-person concerts and its associated revenue, that number is closer to 50%. More than ever before, we need your support, so that our choristers can continue to call NJYC home for seasons to come.  

Together, we will rise again. 




There are many ways you can support NJYC today: 

  • Make a one-time tax-deductible donation to our 2020 annual appeal We Rise Again
  • Join NJYC's Sostenuto Circle by scheduling a reoccurring gift that will help sustain us throughout the season. 
  • Check with your employer about matching gift programs. 
  • Follow us on Facebook and Instagram, and like and share our posts with your friends and family. 



You can also mail a check directly to NJYC at:

PO Box 697

NJYC is a registered 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization; contributions are deductible to the full extent permissible by law.

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act provides that, for tax year 2020, individuals may deduct up to $300 of cash contributions “above the line,” regardless of whether they itemize their deductions. In addition, the 50% of adjusted gross income limitation on charitable contributions is suspended for 2020, so that this year only, people who itemize deductions can make charitable donations to qualified 501(C)3 organizations, such as ours, for up to 100% of their adjusted gross income (AGI). Donations must be cash (not stocks, property, etc.) and must be made by December 31, 2020.
