Fundraising, a healthy part of the non-profit culture, positively contributes to Portland Choir's mission. Because tuition and concert proceeds account for approximately 50% of Portland Choirs operating costs, the organization depends on year-round donations and fund-raising activities. Families are asked to either participate with fund raising or contribute monetarily toward the tuition "gap," the difference between the actual cost of the program and amount charged for tuition.
The true cost estimate for the Portland Choirs program is $825 for Primary Boys, $1175 for Intermediate Boys, $2250 for Advanced Boys (Camibatas & Trebles), $1350 for Advanced Gents, $2600 for Premier Gents, and $1750 for Ovation which is $300 more for Primary, $500 more for Intermediate Boys, $900 more for Advanced Boys, $450 more for Ovation Training, and $550 more for Ovation per participant, also referred to as the "gap."
Please make a voluntary tax-deductible donation to the Portland Choirs Annual Fund for the true cost of participation or commit to this season's fundraising events. For season 2017-18, Portland Choirs will be participating in the Fall Raffle, Winter & Spring Appeal Letter Campaigns, "Thrive" Brunch Fundraiser, Flower Basket selling, and Silent Auction at the year-end concert.
