BECOME A DA CAPO DONOR
The Italian phrase da capo has to do with a repeat. Da Capo donors have authorized that a donation to St. Martin’s comes directly from their checking account or credit card on a regular basis (usually monthly) through a secure provider. These regular donations happen automatically and conveniently, and often allow donors to give more over the course of a year than by a lump-sum check or charge. Setting up “electronic funds transfers” (EFT) is quick and easy. Call the St. Martin’s office to set up this kind of giving.
BECOME A SPONSOR
Sponsorships allow a donor to receive name recognition, honor or memorialize an individual, and support the work of St. Martin’s Chamber Choir at a significant level. It is possible to sponsor a season, a concert set, or an individual singer. To learn more about becoming a sponsor, please contact the General Manager at 303-298-1970 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
GIFTS FOR THE FUTURE

Gifts made by naming St. Martin’s Chamber Choir as a beneficiary of an IRA, 401K, savings account, life insurance policy or donor-advised fund support the financial needs of the future.
