Our Sponsorship Program

April 26th 2016

To Potential Community Partners;

The Orillia Vocal Ensemble is an 80 member community choir committed to raising community awareness of important, local charities, as well as raising funds for them through proceeds from our concerts and performances. Since forming five years ago, the OVE has raised over $75,000.00 for local organizations which include the Sharing Place Food Bank, Telecare Distress Line, Couchiching Jubilee House, Big Brothers Big Sisters, the Lighthouse Mission, Camp Couchiching, The Community Foundation of Orillia and Area, Hillcrest Lodge, Green Haven Shelter for Women, Information Orillia and Hospice Orillia.

We fulfill our mission through a unique model. Choir expenses are paid primarily through membership dues, while business and individual sponsors partner with us to contribute to our operating costs. We have a wonderful sponsor in Dapper Depot, whose contributions pay for the production costs of our two major fundraising concerts.

There are many other costs associated with operating a choir of this size. For example, the purchase of sheet music, rehearsal space rental, musical direction, accompanist salaries and admin support all factor into the OVE Budget. As the OVE continues to grow musically we would love to have your support of our fundraising mission!

There are three levels of annual sponsorship that we respectfully ask you to consider.

Applause! $200.00
Bravo! $500.00
Encore! $1,000.00

All sponsorships will include recognition in our programs, posters, website and at our events. Sponsorships at the Bravo and Encore levels could include (among other things) the sponsorship of one or two pieces of music for our concert programs, and recognition in the program of the first concert in which they are performed.

Please let me know if you are interested in supporting the OVE’s musical development and fundraising mission at any of these sponsorship levels. You will be supporting both the Arts in Orillia and many of those members of our community in need. As a registered charity, any donation over $25.00 will be tax receipted.

Thank-you so much for your consideration of these sponsorship opportunities and I look forward to hearing from you,

Carol Benedetti, OVE Manager
