Overview
Golden Gate Performing Arts, better known as the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus, comprises 300 volunteer singers who appear at major concert halls and community events an average of thirty times each year. Since 2008, the size of the chorus has increased by 33 percent, and its budget has grown by 200 percent. It now performs for 16,500 people annually. With renewed general operating support, the organization would assess its internal infrastructure and build capacity to sustain its growth. This would include developing its board and increasing contributed income. Renewed funding would also support the organization’s efforts to expand its performance schedule regionally.
