NCS Ongoing Fundraisers

Did you know that NCS chorus members’ dues and concert revenues account for less than half of NCS’s operating budget in any given year? In order for us to “balance the books” the chorus depends on individual and corporate sponsorships, as well as concert program ad sales.

In addition, the chorus has established some “ongoing fundraisers” that provide the chorus with a percentage donated to NCS for everyday purchases (such as online shopping or eating out at local restaurants) that you might make anyway. Your participation in these programs, of course, is entirely voluntary, but very much appreciated by NCS.   And if you are not the shopper in your family, please share these programs with whomever does the shopping. Your friends and extended family, regardless of where they might might live, can also participate in these programs and
designate NCS as the benefitting non-profit organization.
