Help us to build our library while decreasing the cost of participation for every youth!
Purpose: Purchasing only one piece of music for the entire choir to perform costs us ~$500! In years past, we have passed this cost on to each of the youth, requiring them to purchase their music. Our Board has decided that it is time for change -- we need your help to build a significant library of choral music that will be loaned to the youth each year at no cost and that can be reused by new participants for years to come.
Goal: Our goal is $20,000. We have begun with a seed fund of $3,000 from the 2015 Sale of Champions.
Donations: Donations in any amount are accepted online (click here) or by mail. To donate by mail, send a check payable to "AOSFYC" with "Music Library Fund" in the memo line to:
