Being a donor has its perks.

With your gift, you receive our gratitude—as well as special benefits that get you up-close-and-personal with YOUR May Festival!

Giving Levels

Internal Revenue Service regulations provide that your gift is tax-deductible in the amount it exceeds the value of any benefits you receive.

Your Impact

Supporting the May Festival is a nod to the history, traditions, and values that shaped Cincinnati’s vibrant performing arts industry and made the region what it is today. The May Festival has been here from the beginning, establishing the Queen City’s identity as the City that Sings.

Your gift to the May Festival sustains this unique identity and ensures that Cincinnati’s Chorus will be here for generations to come.

Sustained Giving

Monthly installments allow you to spread your gift over the course of a year, creating an ongoing source of support of the May Festival. We can charge your card in installments or bill you according to your preference.

Planned Giving

Planned giving allows you to support the May Festival’s legacy in perpetuity by placing dollars in an endowed fund where the interest can either be used or reinvested each year as need arises. This giving strategy provides the most impact over the longest amount of time.
