Dear friends of choral singing!
You and your choir want to participate in a festival or competition abroad? But this year’s budget is already exhausted? Your participation is about to fail? You are in good company because many choirs and ensembles worldwide face the same problems! Keep your spirits up. There is no reason to waive the experience of meeting choirs from all over the world!
You can do something by yourself! You have a talent to make people happy and this talent in addition has a positive, peaceful and merry image: Choral singing! For businesses, organisations and individuals this image is very attractive: Thus you can represent your town, your country, a business, an institution or an idea and communicate messages. Turn these people and institutions into fans and sponsors! Become ambassadors of your town, local enterprises and institutions!
To make sure that we get to know each other definitely at the next intercultural event and sing together, we compiled some tips and examples for fundraising actions which can be combined and expanded arbitrarily. There are no general courses of action for sponsorship and PR – it always strongly depends on the respective conditions and structures you have at your home town. Thus you will have a lot of fun creating something individual, to use existing contacts and to establish new contacts. Surely you will find a good suggestion in this flyer or an even better idea occurs to you while reading! We would be glad if you would share your experiences with other choirs. Mail us about your individual, unique and unusual campaign! We will put these reports online!
Enjoy reading and above all enjoy a creative brainstorming with your fellow singers!
We wish you a lot of fun with your own campaign!
