Support Us

We encourage you to support the Handel Aria Competition by making a tax-deductible donation. Last year we made the leap to offering $500 in travel money to every single finalist after hearing that the expense of coming to Madison, WI for the finals was preventing singers from applying.  We did this to encourage as many young artists as possible to participate, and saw an immediate doubling of applications. We invite you to help us cover this $3,500 commitment to the emerging artists we are supporting through the Competition.

Support Us  with a web donation through Network for Good.  This will help us support young singers throughout the competition process by underwriting travel grants and awards, as well as providing remuneration for competition judges and instrumental accompanists.


You can also donate by mail!  Please complete our HAC donation Form and send your check donation by mail to:
