Our goal is to raise enough funds from individual contributions to help us to sustain our mission of singing for joy, social justice, and community. In addition to supporting our impressive staff of Artistic Director, Assistant Director, and Accompanist, Womansong also helps support our own grant program, the New Start Fund, which provides grants and scholarships to support women on a new path to becoming self-sufficient. We don’t know of any other chorus that does this!
We are also excited to offer you our upcoming Fall Concert Series – stay tuned to learn about this year’s theme.
Music can heal our hearts, and provide us with inspiration to act.
Thank you so much for supporting Womansong!

Without your generous giving,
we would not be able to support these programs or bring beautiful music to Asheville.
You don’t have to sing to be an important part of Womansong. We’d love for you to assist us as you can throughout the year, but especially at concert time!
We are grateful to be supported by ArtsAVL, Buncombe County Government, and the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.
In December 2020 Womansong was thrilled to receive a $5,290 COVID relief grant from the Asheville Area Arts Council. This came from federal CARES Act funds that North Carolina targeted to local arts councils and arts-related businesses. Buncombe County’s share was disbursed by the Asheville Area Arts Council, which granted $251,000 to 36 local arts organizations.
In a normal year, 35% of Womansong’s income is from ticket sales, so it’s no surprise that even with the generosity of our Celebrate 33 contributors and Womansong Reimagined sponsors, we ended the year with a sizeable budget deficit.
The Arts Council grant helped reduce that deficit and allows us face to the unknowns of 2021 with more confidence. We are grateful to the Asheville Area Arts Council and to our state representatives who chose to allocate part of North Carolina’s CARES Act money to support arts organizations.
