SingYourJoy continues to exist and thrive through the ongoing financial support of many organizations, businesses and individuals who believe in our mission and mandate.
We are grateful for the support of Oak Bay United Church, Redeemer Lutheran Church and James Bay United Church in providing rehearsal homes for our various choirs.
These major funders have provided substantial grants that allow our organization to provide excellent leadership and skills development during our seasons:
Victoria Foundation – the NRS Fund, Woodsome Fund, the Anonymous Fund and the Larch Fund, all through the Victoria Foundation Community grant program.
ProVision Fund, Pacific Mountain Region,
United Church of Canada
CRD – SingYourJoy commissioned a special 10th-anniversary choral work by acclaimed composer Brian Tate, and we acknowledge the generous support of the CRD Arts Commission through the Arts & Culture Support Service. The world premiere of this piece will follow soon.
Community Business Supporters:
Patrons, donors and concert audiences
Many individuals provide ongoing financial assistance to SingYourJoy through donations large and small, monthly and one-time-only. And our audiences, through their tickets, enable the SingYourJoy family of choirs to continue their choral work with young people throughout the Capital Region.
As a registered charity, SingYourJoy is able to provide tax receipts for donations over $20.
Remembering our Champions
We fondly remember Ted and Helen Hughes, our very first Honorary Patrons, whose lifelong passions for justice and community especially for young people, inspired our work with this choral community.
And we are grateful for the life and work of Paul Fraser, former SingYourJoy Board Chair, who was a keen advocate for the chorus, enabled us to become a CRA registered charity AND introduced us to Ted and Helen.
SingYourJoy, Victoria’s young adult chorus, is a non-auditioned group of people who love to sing, and make new friends forming a vibrant, diverse community.
Our repertoire is as varied as our membership, and the common denominator is music, laughter and joy, allowing us to live our message of sharing together with others.
