An annual day of charitable generosity and giving, GivingTuesday occurs the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. It’s a day to acknowledge the power of collective giving. This year it falls on Tuesday, December 1.
Kari Ragan is this year’s NATS #GivingTuesday Chair. Hear why she believes in NATS.
It is because of NATS supporters, like you, that we have been able to transform lives through the power of singing over the years. We hope you will consider a donation to NATS on December 1.
Every donation and act of kindness counts. Our mission is to advance excellence in singing through teaching, performance, scholarship, and research, which is more vital now than ever before in these challenging times. This year’s campaign supports student auditions and is one of the many ways you can make a difference.
National Student Auditions is a premier NATS program serving thousands of student participants each year. Your contribution to GivingTuesday and these student auditions will be a vote of pride to:
Supporting career advancement of our NATS teachers and their students is at the core of NATS. Your support at any level will go a long way to making National Student Auditions an even more valuable experience for young singers.
Please make your gift on or before, Tuesday, December 1.
And, NATS will match the first $2,500 donated on GivingTuesday with a generous contribution from Tod and Elaine Fitzpatrick, in honor of their undergraduate voice teacher, Janet Smith.

"NATS is an astonishing organization that has had a meaningful impact on nearly every aspect of my career as both student and teacher," Tod says. "With this gift, Elaine and I honor our utterly amazing undergraduate voice teacher, Janet Smith, for her undying dedication to the craft of singing and for changing countless lives for the better!"
Together, we can make the world a better place for our students, our profession, and our society.
GivingTuesday contributions are quick, easy and will count as part of the NATS Framing Our Future Annual Giving initiative.
Thank you for your support.
