Canterbury Music Council, in partnership with Canterbury Music Parents works hard throughout the year to fundraise to support the needs of the program. With each fundraiser, a portion of all proceeds is reserved in a separate fund for the student to use towards trips, music clothing or events (recitals/socials) that are sanctioned by the Music department. Currently, 75% of monies raised goes toward the student accounts and 25% goes to the Music Parent Council to support the Music Department in various ways. Students must "spend" the funds in their personal account before the end of their grade 12 year. Any funds remaining are re-directed back into the general music fund for the good of the entire program.
Here is a list of fundraising activities:
The Canterbury Music Parent Support Group has enrolled in Fundscrip. This fundraising program gives you money back on all your purchases at some of the best-known retailers in Canada. To date there are over 152 retailers to choose from. 75% of the money you earn goes directly into your child's account, which is held at the school and 25% goes towards supporting your music program. It's a win-win situation!
We would like to bring to your attention that anyone contributing to the United Way, can direct a portion of their contributions to CACDA (Canterbury Arts Centre Development Association). This organisation is solely dedicated to supporting the Arts Canterbury Program. They are a charitable organisation, give tax receipts and therefore have a charitable registration number : BN891786840 RR0001. Gifts can also be made at www.cacda.com.
