Each year the Georgetown Chorale selects a local charity as our beneficiary for the coming season. Funds raised through Spring Benefit Concert ticket sales and targeted donations provide support for our beneficiary. We are proud to have donated more than $275,000 to local charities since our founding. For the 2018-2019 season we have selected Yachad as our beneficiary.
Yachad (www.yachad-dc.org) brings communities together to preserve safe and affordable housing and to revitalize neighborhoods in the District of Columbia and greater metropolitan area. Yachad, which means “together” in Hebrew, mobilizes volunteers, invests financial resources, and works together across faiths to transform people and properties."
