A Cappella Joy Chorus is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to music education and performance. Fundraising helps us cover expenses such as coaching, facilities, and travel. We will need additional funds to make the trip to New Orleans in October 2019 for the Sweet Adelines International Competition. Any support you can provide is greatly appreciated!
We gladly accept donations of money and in-kind gifts. Donations are generally tax-deductible. We accept donations in person or by mail to A Cappella Joy, PO Box 2896, Woodinville, WA 98072.
Remember that gifts to A Cappella Joy also qualify for matching gift funds from many employers, including Boeing, Microsoft, and Starbucks. You can double your contribution!
If you are a member of AJoy, ask if your employer matches volunteer hours. These are hours you may spend outside of rehearsals or performances, participating in board meetings, planning meetings, wreath sales, and garage sales.

Great American Opportunities
When you buy wrapping paper, magazine subscriptions, personalized gifts, and other items through Great American, you can have a portion of your purchase amount donated to AJoy. They offer the same heavyweight wrapping paper that the schools sell, so you get high-quality wrapping paper in large rolls for the price of a lightweight drugstore roll. Best of all, most of their items fund 50% back to A Cappella Joy! Just follow the instructions on our page at https://www.gaschoolstore.com/storev2/home/index?t=de7dd7c6-f24e-4eed-b719-07e4c5b9aaee, or go to the home page and enter our group number, 3077799.
