Our Community of Support

The Toronto Mendelssohn Choir gratefully acknowledges the support of our government partners, corporate and foundation sponsors, and individual donors who, through their financial support, make it possible for the TMC to present outstanding high-quality performances, community engagement programs, and education opportunities. This list reflects donations from September 2019 to present.

We make every effort to ensure the accuracy of this list, however if you notice an error or omission, please accept our apologies and contact Amy Saffer at amy.saffer@tmchoir.org or 416-598-0422.

Thank you to our donors

January 2021 update: Thank you so much to our donors — to the ones we welcomed back and to the new donors who joined us. We’re still getting a few cheques coming in but are thrilled to announce we’ve reached our goal of $50,000 in our 2020 Challenge Campaign. The campaign was started by an incredible $50,000 donation from a long-time supporter of the TMC who then called on others to join them in supporting the Choir throughout this difficult year. Thanks to hundreds of donors, we reached our 2020 goal to enable the TMC to continue to bring great choral music to our community in new ways during the pandemic and beyond. Thank you.
