Donations and Bequests

Coffs City Choir Inc is a not-for-profit community choir.  We do our best to keep costs to a minimum and we charge our members just enough to cover these costs.  We are fortunate to have a very generous supporter for our rehearsal space so our main costs are in purchasing music (we strictly adhere to copyright law) and in paying our very talented conductor and accompanist.  Donations and gifts by way of bequests can assist us to develop the choir further and are very gratefully received.  Gifts to Coffs City Choir Inc are not tax deductible, though please know you are helping to bring joy to both our choir members and the many people we perform for throughout the year including regular visits to many aged care centres.
