Bursary and Endowment Funds
Making a difference to children in our community!
The OCC strives to represent the community within the makeup of all choirs. We aim to be inclusive in our membership and welcome members of all socioeconomic groups in the region of Halton. Each year we have many applicants who are unable to afford the tuition fees of the choir. Our goal is that no child who loves to sing and has talent be turned away.
Our bursary program allows us to enroll choristers whose families are experiencing financial challenges. Bursary funds cover the costs associated with choir membership that are included in our tuition: music instruction, workshops, festivals, retreats, theory, vocal coaching, music, and uniforms.

Our Current Bursary Fund Supporters:
Our commitment to assisting families with financial challenges is of paramount importance to the OCC. We have recently established an Endowment Fund for the purpose of providing a stable long term source of funding to the bursary fund. Your support to our endowment fund will help us to continue to offer our outstanding programs to all children from all economic backgrounds in the future.
