Walton Chorus depends on fundraising to enable us to present our students with the best music and equipment possible. Because we value our students’ and parents’ time and resources, we strive to keep our fundraising requests to a minimum.
The Walton Choral Booster Club has designated three primary ways of raising funds to support our program:
1. Booster Club Student Participation Fee ($55 per student)
2. Booster Club Sponsorship through donations
3. Designate Walton Choral Booster Club as your charity while shopping via smile.amazon.com
The Booster Club spends a minimum of $108-$120 per student each year. Though Cobb County supplies Walton with the basic tools to run a chorus program, it is with the support of the Booster Club that Walton is able to do all the things that make the Chorus program so successful and outstanding. A very small portion of the choral budget comes from Cobb County, the rest comes from the support of the Booster Club.
Your Student Participation Fee helps to offset the many expenses incurred throughout the year, such as:
- Informal Uniform T-shirt
- Access to resources provided by the Walton Choral Booster Club including, but not limited to:
- Sheet music for all pieces presented at concerts and LGPE
- Accompanists in the classroom and at concerts
- Concert Musicians
- Scholarships for seniors
- Concert Videos for classroom instruction
- Concert Venues
- LGPE registration for every student
- Refreshments at concerts and LGPE
- Website, Charms, and other communications
In addition to the Student Participation Fee, your generous donations are critical to ensuring the continued success of the Walton Chorus, and many companies will match your donation! Here are the Sponsorship Benefits by level:
Gold and Platinum donations can be paid in installments – please contact the Booster Club to make arrangements.
Donation levels are by family. Corporate matching gifts WILL NOT count toward your Sponsorship Level! If your company has a matching gift program, please contact the Booster Club with details. We still appreciate any matching gift from your company and are happy to provide help if needed. Some companies (like Delta Air Lines) only match for education, so in this case, the match would go to Walton High School (not the Chorus Booster Club), and be used toward our classroom accompanists.
*Please note: BOTH the Student Participation Fee AND the Booster Donations are entirely tax deductible.
The Walton Choral Booster Club is a 501(c)(3) non-profit formed to assist the Walton Choral Music Department. EIN: 58-2188768 (Deductibility Code: PC: Public Charity) It is governed by a board consisting of the elected Booster Club Officers, Committee Chairpersons, and the Choral Directors.
