The Heart of America Men's Chorus is Registered with ICTArtDOG (Art Day Of Giving) 2015


Support The Arts In Wichita

Art Day of Giving (ArtDOG) is a 24-hour charitable giving campaign designed to support area nonprofits related to the arts. Participating organizations have the opportunity to both increase their donor bases, as well as bring awareness to not only their nonprofit, but the arts in general.

What is ArtDOG?

Wichita ArtDOG is a 24-hour online fundraising event created to rally community support for local arts organizations. This unique one-day fundraiser is a project of the Wichita Community Foundation (WCF). The event will be on Friday, April 24, 2015, from 12:01 a.m. to 11:59 p.m
The Wichita Community Foundation brings this event to the area with several goals in mind, including:
  • To raise awareness of the current needs of arts organizations in the community
  • To encourage local arts nonprofits to learn how to use digital tools
  • To inspire donors to increase financial support of their favorite local arts organizations
ArtDOG 2014, held on Feb. 28, raised nearly $550,000 for 38 Wichita arts nonprofit organizations.

Heart of America Men's Chorus

This year, HOAMC is participating in ArtDOG 2015.  Heart of America Men's Chorus dedicates itself to warming hearts, building relationships, inspiring change, and transforming lives through the pursuit of excellence in the performance of men's choral literature. HOAMC was designed to provide a group of volunteer individuals the opportunity for cultural enrichment, musical education, and social interaction. With the community in mind, we also strive to collaborate with local charitable groups, raising funds and awareness through music.

To donate to the chorus or any participating arts organization, go to ICTArtDog.org.  Click on the Arts Organizations button at the top and click on the organization of your choice (Hopefully we are one of them).  Donations of any amount go toward singer scholarships, sheet music expense, accompanist and tech expenses, and general operations.  Thank you in advance for your support.

Any individual, family or business may donate to ArtDOG. Donations to nonprofit organizations are tax-deductible and irrevocable. Online contributions can be made via credit or debit card only.
