Become a Patron of the Arts: Support IMT

We work hard to present terrific concerts at low prices. We need help to keep our ticket prices down, so that our shows are accessible to as many people as possible. We are a small organization, and donations from individuals make a significant difference to us. Over a quarter of our budget comes from cash and in-kind donations, much more than from grants.

Please consider making a donation to IMT. Even the smallest donation is a big help.

You can make a donation at any concert. Donation forms can be found at the CD table.

You can also make a contribution online at any time in any amount. Just click below and select "Donation to IMT" on the shopping cart page, then enter the number of dollars you wish to contribute as the quantity.

If you would like to donate by check, please mail it to:

PO Box 5930
Takoma Park, MD 20913

And you can make a monthly donation of 12 payments, from $5 a month up to $100 a month. We'll charge your credit card each month for 12 months.

Donations support IMT's general operations unless the donor specifies otherwise. Please contact our executive director at for more information or to discuss a targeted donation, a large donation or a bequest.

Of course, we welcome any donation, large or small, at any time.
