Tuition alone covers only 50% of Northwest Choirs' Budget. The annual Raffle, Black Tie and Blue Jean Gala, and Annual Fund provide additional support. However, these funding sources only cover about two-thirds of Northwest Choirs' expenses. Donations help us close this gap.

Make a Difference in the Life of a Northwest Choirs Chorister!
Nearly 25% of Northwest Boychoir and Vocalpoint! Seattle families rely on an average of $75,000 in financial assistance each year. Every gift you make helps us send another chorister through our Music Education Programs — providing financial assistance for tuition, uniforms, camp, and educational programs and opportunities.
