Sponsorship Opportunities

There are many opportunities to support the Association of Lutheran Church Musicians biennial conference in 2019. Full or partial sponsorships are possible, and undesignated gifts are also welcome. Sponsorship opportunities – gifts given to support a particular part of the program – are listed below.

Direct any questions to Michael Krentz, secretary/treasurer of ALCM, at mekrentz@gmail.com or John Morris, Portland conference chairperson, at jmorris@princeofpeacedublin.org.

Gifts may be given by printing and mailing a sponsorship form, or online at https://alcm.org/make-a-donation/. Check the “2019 Portland Conference” button. If you wish to designate your gift, include who/what you want to sponsor in the box underneath. If nothing is entered, it will be treated as an undesignated gift to the conference.

To make a pledge now and pay later, fill out the form below or send an email to Michael Krentz. Please fulfill pledges by May 1, 2019 to be included in the conference book.

All gifts in support of the conference are fully tax deductible and will be acknowledged in the conference program book.

More information on the conference can be found at https://alcm.org/2019-portland/.

The planners for the 2019 conference and the board of ALCM thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you in Portland!
