Support Us

Music may move the soul but it also puts a strain on the bank balance!   In common with many other arts organisations, WCS receives no official funding or grant of any kind from any local or national bodies.   Consequently, income for supporting the choir’s charitable objectives comes primarily from concert ticket sales and membership subscriptions, and our annual budgets have to be carefully constructed with a tight control maintained on all costs.
Staging a major, large choral work, including hire of the venue and staging, professional musician costs, marketing, and engaging our year-round professional music staff can cost in the region of £15,000-25,000 depending on the venue, work(s) performed and resources required.  To fulfil our ambition of extending our range of music and audience reach even more we are looking at opportunities that would enable us to put the choir on a sounder financial footing.  Cost constraints do impact our ability to fulfil these ambitions and charitable objectives.
Perhaps there is a way that you could support us in this endeavour.   Please click on the following links to learn more about our Friends of the Choir scheme, donations, sponsorship (corporate and individual) and legacy options.
WCS is registered with the Charity Commission for tax purposes (charity no. 263150) and participates in the Gift Aid scheme.   In most cases this means that your donations to us will be worth even more as we claim back some of the tax.   More information on this can be found on the Gift Aid page.  Remember, it costs you nothing extra to be registered for this scheme.
Did you know that you can also support us when shopping online?
There are many retailers who are affiliates with several online shopping for charity schemes where they will contribute small donations to your chosen charity every time you shop with them online.   More details can be found at www.wimbledon-choral.org.uk/shopping.
