The 2013-14 Season
Membership fee of $390.00 per chorister, plus $90 for the choir uniform covers the term from September 2013 to June 2014 . 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 $390; the second and any additional child’s tuition is $365 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) and the uniform fee may be scheduled over a maximum of 6 months, and may be paid via post-dated cheques. Post-dated chques need to be on file by the first rehearsal of the season. Payments are to be received no later than the 15th of each month, starting September 2013. MFYC is happy to work with you on a payment plan that works for your family’s budget.
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 finacial 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. Grandparents and close family members of the choristers can be of significant help. Often they have more time available and love the opportunity to be closer to the children and assist with MFYC activities. Volunteer options are included in registration package for your consideration.
If you require more information regarding our fees and volunteering options, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
