The Lake Houston Musical Arts Society (LHMAS) is a patron-supported organization. Subscriptions and ticket income covers less than a third of our operating expenses. Your membership is a tangible affirmation of your support of the musical arts and is an investment that will continue to enrich the performing arts in the Kingwood area. Donations of any size are welcome. Our status as a 501(c)(3) "public charity" makes LHMAS eligible for individual tax-deductible contributions, as well as for corporate matching. By establishing a tradition of annual giving, you can have pride in knowing your gift has helped to secure Lake Houston Musical Arts Society as a leading cultural institution and valued asset in the community.
There are many ways you can help support the Lake Houston Musical Arts Society
- Individual Giving - LHMAS relies on individual donations to the Annual Fund to fulfill our mission to inspire, educate and entertain. Each gift supports the music you hear and the artistic quality you experience and enriches our local community. If desired, your gift may be recognized Anonymously, In Honor of, In Memory of, or with a company name.
- Corporate Matching - Your gift could mean twice as much to LHMAS! Many area employers offer corporate matching programs. Check with your human resources department to find out about your employer's match program.
- Sponsor or Underwrite a Concert - We are always looking for companies or individuals to underwrite Lake Houston Musical Arts Society concerts, in whole or in part.

- Donate Supplies - What to see your dollars go to meet a specific need? Items like stamps, envelopes, printer paper/ink, computer software, choir folders, and much more are always needed. Also, sponsoring the cost of one or more uniforms can help keep costs down for a needy student.
