DONATE

Please consider making a donation to the choir. Our outreach concerts bring live music to nursing and retirement homes, and we have a strong commitment to never turn a singer away for financial reasons. A donation of $85 would provide the funds for a partial subsidy for a singer who cannot afford a full term of choir dues. Also, we wish to pay our director and accompanist fairly for their work.

Other choir expenses your donation could support include the following:

  • $35 – the cost of a ladies choir blouse (the portion the choir pays)
  • $75 – the cost of rehearsal space rental for one week
  • $185 – the cost of a full subsidy for one term of choir dues
  • $275 – the cost of one set of scores (music) for a new song
  • $480 – the cost to run our website for one year
  • $1,275 – the cost of rehearsal space rental for one season

High Spirits is a registered charity (The Vancouver High Spirits Choral Society) and you will receive a tax receipt for your donation. Donations received before the end of December will receive a tax receipt for this calendar year.

Donations can be made in four ways:

1. Donate using Paypal:
