What about fundraising commitments?

The CCOC is a registered charitable organization that requires annual funding to support its programs. Although tuition covers approximately 30% of our annual budget, the CCOC must secure additional funding to help continue its work. Parents and choristers are encouraged and expected to participate in our annual fundraising efforts. Your participation allows us to broaden our reach and touch new donors and build awareness about the organization and our talented choristers.

 

Do you offer financial assistance or bursaries?

The CCOC is proud to maintain a Bursary Fund to which families may apply for financial assistance. Bursaries are awarded based on a combination of financial need, artistic ability, and expressed interest and ability to commit to the CCOC’s activities. Applications are assessed by the Bursary Committee which meets in prior to the beginning of each season, and as needed throughout the year.

Email bursary@canadianchildrensopera.com for more information or call (416) 366-0467 if you would like to inquire about our bursary program.
