Precious Gems

If you relate to any of the above questions, then there is a great chance that you have just the sort of thing that other people will value. And pay for!

In order to continue doing great work and expand it, we need to raise money every year to cover our budget. Tuition income covers about 60% of our operating budget. The rest comes in the form of grants and donations.

Our dream, our goal is to provide a place in our choirs for every Washington County youth with the desire and commitment to be part of our musical family without regard to their family’s ability to pay.

Artists/ Craftspeople are very much valued

Have you ever donated your work and then had it sold off cheap?

If you are concerned that your art or craft will be sold off cheap just because, well, it’s art, then rest easy. Before we accept your work, we will discuss with you the market rates for your work and the minimum you think we should sell it for.

If we don’t think we can get the amount of money your piece deserves, then we won’t accept it. Valuing our long term relationship with you is more important than selling your work at an insulting price.

Why is all of this so important to us? Well, because we’re a bit artsy too. After all, we are all about the music. Or is it the spaces between the notes?

Placing minimum bids on your offers

Please let us know if you think a minimum bid should be placed on your offer and what that bid should be. We want to do right by you. You don’t have to come up with a minimum price for your offer if that’s not important to you, just let us know how much it is worth.

If we don’t think we can get the amount of money your offer deserves, then we won’t accept it. Valuing our long term relationship with you is more important than selling your offer at an insulting price.
