Giving Voice Initiative

Celebrating the creative potential of people with Alzheimer’s Disease and their care partners through choral music

Help us meet our $10,000 match! Your generous donations can be doubled during our Give to the Max campaign! 

We inspire and equip organizations around Minnesota to build Giving Voice Choruses that bring joy, well-being, and purpose  to people with Alzheimer’s and their care partners. The only organization of its kind, Giving Voice Initiative (GVI) is triggering a movement to build choral music communities that celebrate the potential of people living with dementia while increasing community understanding and reducing the stigma of the disease. Your donation will help us to grow and support GVI as we build and sustain Giving Voice Choruses.

GVI’s priority is to meet the needs of people with Alzheimer’s who live outside care facilities because they generally have fewer opportunities to socialize and be creative. Similarly, their care partners often feel isolated and alone. In serving this population, GVI creates unique opportunities for people to connect, grow, challenge stereotypes, and significantly improve quality of life. GVI hopes to be a catalyst for changing the perceptions of Alzheimer’s disease and a contributor to emerging dementia and music studies.

Currently, the Twin Cities is the home of three Giving Voice Choruses, two choruses in Minneapolis and one chorus is St. Paul. Come support Giving Voice Chorus by attending one or both Fall performances. Visit our website,, for complete information on the Giving Voice Initiative and the Giving Voice Choruses. 

 Giving Voice Chorus collaborating partners include MacPhail Center for Music, and in Saint Paul, Lyngblomsten, Amherst H. Wilder Foundation, Health Partners for Memory and Aging, and Jewish Family Service of St. Paul.
