Members of the 1967 Asian Tour are commemorating the 50th Anniversary of their historic tour by working to make sure future generations of singers in the Harvard Choruses have a similar opportunity to tour.
Gifts to the 1967 Asian Tour Legacy Fund will be invested in the Forbes Fund and will provide financial support to the Harvard Glee Club, the Radcliffe Choral Society, and the Harvard-Radcliffe Collegium Musicum to fund grants for special projects intended to improve the planning and execution of concert tours and/or to enhance the touring experiences of tour participants, and to provide financial assistance to individual members in financial need in order to allow them to join such concert tours, or to fully participate in activities enjoyed by other chorus members while on tour.
As a member of ANT ’67, you are invited to give as generously as you can. Together we hope to raise a minimum of $126,000–the cost of our 1967 tour–to add to the corpus of the Forbes Fund.
There are a variety of ways that you can make a current year gift, or a pledge over several years, to this important endeavor.
PLEDGE: To pledge your commitment to the Legacy Fund, please outline the details of your pledge in a letter or email addressed to the 1967 Legacy Fund. Letters may be mailed to Harvard Glee Club Foundation at 1753 Massachusetts Ave., 3rd Floor, Cambridge, MA 02140. Emails may be sent to 1967Legacy@hgcfoundation.org.
ONLINE: To make a secure online gift right now, click on the “1967 Asian Tour Legacy Gift Fund” link below. You do not need to have a PayPal account to process your gift this way, just a working credit card (VISA, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover).
MAIL: To make your gift or pledge payment by mail, please make your check payable to Harvard Glee Club Foundation, and mail it to: 1753 Massachusetts Ave., 3rd Floor, Cambridge, MA 02140
PHONE: To make a credit card gift by phone, call the Foundation at 617.547.GLEE (4533).
OTHER: With the market as it is, this would be an excellent time to consider funding your gift with appreciated securities (and avoid capital gains tax). Likewise, you may want to make your gift with an IRA Charitable Rollover which can help satisfy any required minimum distribution from your retirement account without incurring taxable income. Information on these options is available by calling 617.547.GLEE (4533).
TRIBUTE GIFTS: You can make your gift in honor or memory of a person (or persons) or in commemoration of an important life event. There is a “Tribute Info” field in the PayPal gift screen where you can make such a tribute designation–please be sure to indicate if the gift is “in memory of…,” “in honor of…,” or “in celebration of…” You can also include that information with your check if making your gift by mail. If you want someone notified of your tribute gift–a widow/widower or other family member, for instance–send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the person’s name and mailing address and a tribute notification will be sent (gift amounts are not disclosed in tribute notifications).
