Support Us

Help support CCCC!  Contra Costa Children’s Chorus is a 501(c) 3 non-profit corporation. Much of our funding comes from tuition, concert ticket sales and seasonal fundraisers. The chorus relies on financial support from individuals, families, businesses and the community in order to provide excellence in musical education.  But it is the individual gifts from our chorus families that we rely on the most.

Your donations to CCCC are tax deductible.  You can support us in many ways:

We accept donations vis PayPal:

A very easy way to support CCCC is to buy all your Amazon.com purchases through the Amazon Smile Foundation.  It gives back .05% to non-profits!  Pay with your Amazon.com scrip – a double benefit!  Just log into Amazon Smile using this link.  Make sure you have CCCC selected as your non-profit.  Then go shopping.  Next time you log in you will be greeted with a “smile”! Same Amazon. But CCCC gets a % of Amazon’s profits.  No extra money out of your pockets.  (Make sure you use smile.amazon.com to do your shopping so that we get the benefit).

Donation FAQ:

Where does our money go?

As in similar organizations, most of our income goes to artistic and administrative staff salaries, and professional support services.  Next is facility and equipment rentals, insurance, new music, and the scholarship fund.
