ICC offers fundraising opportunities throughout the year to help singers raise funds for their tour accounts. These include the following, and the list may be expanded as new fundraisers are added. (Note: the Aug/Sept fundraiser is designated for tuition accounts. All other fundraiser credits are applied to tour accounts.)
Shop with Scrip – the fundraiser that pays you to purchase!
Gift cards can be purchased for everyday expenses including groceries, gas, restaurants, and more. A percentage of each gift card goes directly to the singer’s tour account as a rebate for using Scrip. (Rebates vary, with over 750 different retailers.)
Choose from physical cards or eGift card products. Over 300 brands of eGift cards are available immediately and over 100 are reloadable onto your physical card. Visit shopwithscrip.com for more information and contact the ICC office to obtain the family enrollment code.
Season Program Book Advertisements – a lucrative fundraising opportunity
Each year the ICC produces a color program book which is distributed at concerts throughout the season. The book contains information about the ICC, photographs of ICC events, choir rosters, staff and board directories, sponsors and contributors, etc. Ads for this book can be sold by ICC singers to area businesses, and these become part of the program book for the current season. For each ad sold, the singer receives 50% of the profit for their tour account. Ads range in size from a simple business name listing for $100 to a full page for $1000. Bonus: singers who sell $750 or more in ads will receive 60% of the profits. This means that selling one full-page ad at $1000 will put $600 in the singer’s tour account. Any combination of ads exceeding $750 qualifies the singer to receive 60% profit. The advertising sales packet including instructions, mechanical requirements, and the ad contract can be obtained in the ICC office or downloaded from this website. Contracts and ad copy are due by Monday, November 15, 2021.
