Support The Choir

Online donation system by ClickandPledge

On stage, EOJAS inspires our audiences by sharing the experiences of the African and African-American history and culture through exceptional music-making.  In the classroom, we provide students and directors the opportunity to learn the meaning behind this music and the toolkit to express this meaning through performance. As an organization, we are highly committed to our vision and mission: to entertain, inspire, affirm and unify the worldwide community.

Our membership of singers and our community of supporters help us provide world-class experiences, bringing singers from a wide distance an immersive experience. Supporters like you help bridge the gap between ticket sales and the cost of operation. You increase our reach and help us provide these exceptional offerings. Join us in making these goals a reality. Here are just a few ways to get involved:

Impact our mission

There is no donation that is too small! You can make a mark in the historical and contemporary African and African-American music traditions with your gift. For example, with a donation as low as $100, you can provide the musicians who accompany us at all of our events. Any donation at this level allows us to reach out to new schools, new communities and present new music by supporting our general operations. Donors who provide this type of support will be listed as a Supporter in our program for that season.

Support arts education

You can provide a teaching workshop for $500! Both students and directors will benefit from individually tailored sessions. You can impact an entire arts community. Donors who support our educational initiatives will receive a note from a student participant from one of our workshops, and will be listed as an Arts Education Supporter in our program for that season.

Reach the community

You can support the African and African-American history and culture preserved and shared through exceptional artistry with a leadership gift of $2000.  This gift will underwrite one EOJAS concert, reaching communities and churches throughout the mid-Atlantic region. Those who support this type of leadership will receive a copy of the EOJAS CD, a sponsorship listing on the front page of the EOJAS program for that season, and recognition thanking you during the EOJAS concert.


Our donors support each step we make towards fulfilling our mission with any size donation that they make. We are grateful and every dollar makes a real difference!

EOJAS benefits from our community’s time, talent and treasure. If you would prefer to donate your professional services, we would love to speak with you. Please contact our Vice President of Marketing and Public Relations at vpampr AT
