The 2016-17 Season
Membership fee : $475.00 per chorister, which includes uniform and retreat costs. Returning members who do not require a uniform will receive a $50 discount. Budget payment terms can be arranged as needed. Acceptance in the choir is contingent upon payment of these fees. All forms, including the volunteer section of the registration form, must be completed in full by the first rehearsal.
A sibling discount in the amount of $25 is offered to families with two or more children in the choir. The fee for the first child is $475; the second and any additional child’s tuition is $450 with the sibling discount applied.
While we encourage families to pay the full membership fee at the time of registration, payment for membership (or a part of it, if financial assistance is needed) may be scheduled over a maximum of 9 months, and may be paid via post-dated cheques. Post-dated cheques need to be on file by the first rehearsal of the season.
MFYC is happy to work with you on a payment plan that works for your family’s budget. In order to use a payment plan, you must pay a one-time $25 deferral fee.
A limited number of Financial Assistance Scholarships are available for those choristers who, due to financial constraints, would not otherwise be able to participate in the choir. Please request the Financial Assistance Application if you require financial assistance. The funds for financial assistance come from private donations and grants from funding agencies. The amount of financial assistance we are able to provide varies from year to year, and is based upon the amount of funds available to us. Therefore, some requests may not be granted, or may not be granted for the full amount requested. Your information is collected to ensure that our limited resources are allocated as fairly as possible. The information provided will be treated as strictly confidential. Financial Assistance Scholarships do not require repayment.
Tuition fees cover only part of the cost of the music program the MFYC offers to young people.You can actively ensure the success of our choir by volunteering your time with fundraising, advertising, at performances or on choir tours and retreats. Each family is required to fundraise $100 (net) throughout the year, and to contribute 15 hours of volunteer time in some capacity.Volunteer options are included in registration package for your consideration. There are options to buy-out of both volunteering and fundraising.
The different possibilities for buy-outs of volunteers hours and fundraising are as follows:
Option A – $475 + $100 net fundraising + 15 hours of volunteer time
