Chops Inc. is excited to announce our participation in Give to the Max Day! All donations received in the month of November will be doubled through a generous matching donation; the impact will make a significant difference in the lives of many. If you didn't already know, Chops Inc. is a registered 501c3 non-profit organization. Any funds donated to and received by our organization will allow us to provide additional music education and performing arts programs to community members throughout the Twin Cities.
Based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, our programs inspire people of all ages. We offer multiple co-educational performing arts programs throughout the year, entertaining audiences and focusing on personal development. At Chops Inc., we love what we do and look forward to meeting new students ready to excel in our music and performing arts programs.
We're on a mission to bring people from different walks of life together to experience the joy of music education and performing arts. Built on the foundation of integrity, excellence, personal development, and entertainment, we've created programs that welcome students and members to learn music and prepare for performance opportunities, honing their skills and building community along the way.
With that in mind, we're excited to be a registered partner with GiveMN for Give to the Max Day on November 17th, 2022! What is Give to the Max Day? On GTMD, thousands of non-profit organizations throughout the state of Minnesota will receive an outpouring of support and generosity. Want to donate now? No problem! Busy until thanksgiving? Our generous matching program has you covered! All donations received between now and November 30, 2022 will be matched dollar-for-dollar.
When you donate to our non-profit on Give to the Max Day, a generous donor will match your donation, doubling your gift and providing Chops with even more funding to improve the lives of others through performing arts and music education.
