How can I become an individual supporter or volunteer?
Support from individuals help address the immediate and future needs of the Festival. There are numerous ways that you can support the Baroque on Beaver Music Festival.
1. Make a gift: By supporting Baroque on Beaver you help sustain a unique music festival. Baroque on Beaver supports the Island economy, enriches Island life, and provides Island residents and visitors with a unique musical experience. You can make a donation on this website by clicking on the “Donate” button found at the top of every page. We process donations through Paypal. However, you do not have to have a Paypal account to contribute. We accept all major credit cards. If you need assistance, please contact Info@BaroqueOnBeaver.org.
2. Pledge your time: Baroque on Beaver offers a number of programs, activities, and opportunities that individuals may participate in depending on their areas of interest. For example, volunteers may work at events, host musicians and artists in their homes, participate in special fundraising activities, serve on the Board, or assist in developing print and electronic communications. Please contact Info@BaroqueOnBeaver.org.
3. Contribute without donating money: Amazon has introduced a program called AmazonSmile, which will automatically donate 0.5% of your purchases to a charity, such as the Beaver Island Cultural Arts Association, if you so select. It costs you (and BICAA) nothing, and it’s just like shopping on Amazon normally. Items that are eligible for the donations will be marked as such on their product pages. Unfortunately, Subscribe-and-Save purchases and renewals don’t count. The only real catch is you have to start your shopping at smile.amazon.com (which means you have to update your bookmark if you want to do this), and shopping from the Amazon apps, Kindle, or through affiliate links won’t count. Make sure you select Beaver Island Cultural Arts as your charitable organization. Here is our direct link https://smile.amazon.com/ch/30-0349542
