The American Theatre Organ Society (ATOS) operates over a dozen program efforts in support of our primary interest, the theatre pipe organ. ATOS is an IRS approved 501c3 charity. These programs span the scope of the instrument from presentation, instrument preservation and restoration, training for performance maintenance, documentation and an archive to retain the legacy of the instrument for the future. These efforts are supported by the organizations membership dues and a generous set of donors.
Giving can be in the form of restricted (targeted to a specific program activity) or unrestricted (allocated by the ATOS Board as part of the annual budget planning process). ATOS conducts an Annual Fundraising Campaign in the fall of each year when a direct appeal is made, however, gifts and bequests are always a welcome addition to support our efforts.
In addition to the gifting of money, since ATOS is an IRS approved charity, gifts or bequests may also be in the form of savings whether cash or other investments holdings or beneficiary status.
Our members have been very generous in the past, and we hope you can be generous again. For example:
- $500 can bring a young person to the Summer Youth Adventure
- That level can also help with the costs of the young artists competition at the convention
- Those $100 donations can help pay for private lessons, or assist with the Technical Experience
- And for those who listen, Theatre Organ Radio needs support to keep it providing your favorite music every day, all day.
All those $5, $10 and $20 donations can add up, and collectively do so much good. We know that there are those of you who can provide direction-changing gifts to ATOS that can guarantee the future of the theatre organ. For those that are able, please consider including us in your estate planning documents.
Thanks so much for your donation, and choosing to help make a difference.
