Patron and Fundraising Programs
Since 1977, the Norristown Chorale has presented a variety of choral music works to the Montgomery County community and provided its members with a way to allow them to perform those works.
The group is working aggressively to make itself one of the most distinguished community musical organizations in Southeastern Pennsylvania. To continue this growth, we need your help.
Your donation will be recognized in our programs and on our Web site.
We invite you to join our campaign. To make your donation send your check to:
The Norristown Chorale, P.O. Box 532, Norristown, PA 19404
Please include you address and phone number, and
let us know how you would like your name to appear in our programs and on our web page.
Help us in our fundraising
During the year we participate in a variety of fundraing activities - although no single program provides us with adequate funds to close the holes in our budget, we have several which help to close the gaps.
You are welcome to join us.
You Shop. Amazon Gives!
Amazon Smile! This is a quick and easy way to raise funds for your chosen charitable organization. Anyone who shops on Amazon can also be Giving!Why do it?
o Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the charitable organization of your choice.
o AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know. Same products, same prices, same service.
o Support your charitable organization by starting your shopping at smile.amazon.com.
Setting up your choice is easy - go to "smile.amazon.com" - this a portal to Amazon where you choose your charity – and you can change your mind or charity. Type in the words “Norristown Community Chorale Inc.” [without the quotation marks] – probably 11 keystrokes in, the program may fill in the blanks – and, I think it also provides the mailing address: PO Box 532, Norristown, PA 19404 [a way of confirming your choice]. Then you start shopping.
We thank you for your support! Your gift of 0.5% of the price of your purchase will be credited to your chosen charity,.from the wording, it is only the sales price (exclusive of shipping & handling and applicable taxes).
You do NOT have to be a member of Amazon Prime. You WILL be charged the exact, same prices on both web sites - so why not support the Chorale?
e-Scrip Gift Card Sales and On-line Mall
"eScrip" is the umbrella name for a group of fundraising programs. Through eScrip you can use their Card Registy to register your grocery shopping cards, debit or credit cards to donate while using your cards at participating merchants; their On-Line Mall; and a Dining Rewards Program. We have not begun using these programs yet, but hope to in the near future..
In early 2012 we began participating in eScrip Recycling. A green and white collection box is available at rehearsals for your spent printer cartridges, as well as cell phones, CD's, and various other electronic and media items. A previous relationship with eScrip was through the now closed Genuardi Supermarket program.

The sale starts in September and ends usually in late October.
Greens are fresh from Washington state, long lasting, and come in a variety of wreaths and styles.
Once ordered, the contact person will designate a day for pick up - usually before Thanksgiving.
As an alternative, greens may be direct shipped to the people on your Christmas list.
