Message from the VP of Fundraising, Kwana Nicholas

Cosby High School has a vibrant choral program, which encompasses many different levels of music education for all students.  There are approximately 250-300 students, depending on each academic year in the choral program. The Choral Department has created a space where students can blossom creatively, as well as build long-lasting friendships.  Students have the opportunity to learn and experience the excitement of singing in a choral setting.  Students are encouraged to create and be a part of, the foundation of the long-standing tradition of excellence, in the Cosby Choral Department. They are taught to work together to establish a high standard of musicianship, academic and choral excellence. Each student is a valuable member, and everyone has the opportunity to make an impact on the success of each choir.

Cosby Choral Boosters seeks to financially assist student families and the Choral Department, by offsetting costs, with our fundraising efforts.  While all of our choirs perform at each concert throughout the year, as well as many participating in assessments and some serving our community, by singing at local hospitals, our competition Show Choirs incur costs that include, but are not limited to, travel expenses, competition fees, performance attire, choreography, sound system improvements, and set construction.

This is where you can assist.  By becoming a Cosby Choral Boosters Corporate Sponsor, your business will significantly help choral students, their families, and the Cosby Choral Department, by keeping the overall cost, affordable and accessible to all student and family groups. Also, your business will also receive advertising in all 2016-2017 programs and name recognition/advertising on our website.  Your business ad will come before an auditorium of approximately 900 patrons, four times per year, and much more through our website advertising.  You may use your sponsorship as a tax write off, as we are a non-profit, 501c.

Please take a look at our two different options available.

Your support is greatly appreciated!  I would enjoy the opportunity to speak with you, if there are any questions you may have, or if you have any other in-kind sponsor goods or services you would like to offer.

How can Shoparoo afford to make these donations?     Is it a scam?

Shoparoo was created by former teachers and retail industry executives who found a cool way of matching schools’ need for financial support with major brands’ need for market research. Big companies pay Shoparoo for these reports, and that’s how they are able to pass these earnings on to schools.

Where does the information from the receipts go? Is Shoparoo safe?

Shoparoo is 100% safe. The information from all Shoparoo users’ receipts is made completely anonymous and used in market research reports. Shoparoo does not request personal information such as credit card numbers or phone numbers. (Retailer receipts already mask this information.)  You can mark out your name, last 4 digits of your credit card and rewards numbers that are printed on your receipt before your take a photo.
