Fundraising – There are 2 types of fundraising – Student Credits & General Fundraising for the choir
Fundraising for the Student’s Credit account -These accounts allow students to put aside credits that can be used for the student’s own requests for funding of choir related items: voice lessons, uniform fees and trips, etc. Please note that these credits will be held in the student’s name as long as they remain a within the district or graduate. All funds must be used no later than June 30th after the student graduates. Any unused credits will not be paid out to the student, but revert to the WLW Choir Boosters’ Scholarship Fund. Please refer Student Credit section of the website for additional detailed information.

You ‘load’ your usual grocery shopping money on the card right at the register before you start your check out. Then simply use your card to pay for your groceries. You are virtually running your monies through a card that is registered in your name. Your student’s account earns 4% and the Choir Boosters earn 1%.
