Friends of Dominion-Chalmers Music – Fundraising Program 2017

The Choir here at Dominion Chalmers is made up of both congregational members and Student Choral Leads taken from both Ottawa’s Carleton & Ottawa Universities. The Choral Leads are an integral part of our choir and also our congregation. Without them, the Choir could not really exist in it’s current form. It costs $10,000 a year to maintain the Choral Lead Program. Whilst we are engaged in raising money through Fund-Raising Concerts, we also need your help.

If you choose to donate to this fundraising project, your gifts will be Tax Deductible. Please make Cheques payable to Dominion-Chalmers United Church. Also, if you wish you can have your names printed under the appropriate banner on the Recital Programs as “Sponsor of the Music Fund”. Dominion-Chalmers United Church has been well known for having a superb Choral tradition, and with your help and generosity we hope to continue the process so recently started.

All donations of any size are welcome. Bronze level is $100, Silver level is $200,  Gold level is $400, and Platinum is $500.
