Invest in Success

As a community children's choir program, we rely on the support that is so generously provided to us by individuals, businesses and corporate donors.  If you or your business is interested in helping to enrich the lives of Calgarians, please consider making a donation to our program.  Our needs range from bursaries and music library acquistitions (in memory of a loved one or in honour of a special occasion!) to capital acquistitions and tour funding.

Cantaré Children's Choir is incorporated as a non-profit organization in the province of Alberta and is recognized by Revenue Canada as a charitable organization.  As such, we issue Income Tax Receipts for gifts and charitable donations.  Please contact our office to coordinate your donation.
