What do the Choir Boosters do?
Many years ago we decided to stop selling cookie dough and Christmas wreaths, and we began funding part of our operating budget by asking parents for an annual Booster membership donation. (PAUSD gives us about $1,500 a year. Our typical operating budget is $50,000!)
The Choir Boosters are a group of community members and choir parents (and some people whose kids have graduated!) who, simply put, love and support the Gunn Choir. There are monthly evening meetings of about an hour in length, and volunteer opportunities that range from things like duct-taping a 6th grader into their garbage-bag alien costume for the February show, to important and much needed fund-raising for trip sponsorships.
A minimum donation of $50 makes you a Booster. With the minimum donation of $50, you’ll receive free admissions to the November, March, and May Concerts, and your name will be printed in a list of Booster Members in all concert programs. If you haven’t had a chance to donate yet, please consider doing so. See below for more benefits of being a Booster and for more information on how to donate. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
There are various volunteer positions available on the Gunn Choir Booster Board, or you can volunteer as a Booster without being on the Board. You’re always welcome to come to a meeting and see what it’s like (view the calendar). We are a fun and friendly group, and we hope you will join us on paper with your donation, and in person at choir events throughout the year.
