The Mississippi Boychoir exists because of its generous donors. Tuition only funds approximately 35% of the annual budget of the Boychoir; the remaining two-thirds comes from grants from the Mississippi Arts Commission, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Community Foundation of Greater Jackson, grants from private foundations and corporations, and donations from individuals interested in the musical education of young men.
There are LOTS of ways you can support Mississippi Boychoir!

ABOUT THE MICHAEL RYAN BUFKIN SCHOLARSHIP FUND
Michael Bufkin was a young man who possessed all the marks of a good leader. He was a charter member of our Jackson Division and was like a cheerleader as the choir worked toward a goal – he lifted the spirits of his fellow choirboys and encouraged them to do their best. After his accidental death in the fall of 2001, the choir’s scholarship fund was named in his memory.
We invite you to make a gift to the Michael Bufkin Scholarship Fund. In so doing, you will help make the Mississippi Boychoir an option for boys who qualify for membership in the choir but whose families don’t have the financial resources necessary to pay choir expenses. It’s a gift that could make all the difference in the life of a talented boy!
