Marketing and publicity services: For 39 years, we have relied on volunteer services of members to market and publicize the River City Chorale. We have an average of 60 members, only a couple of whom have professional background in these fields. It is difficult to find volunteer members willing to commit to these services year after year.
Sponsorship of visiting instrumentalists to accompany the Chorale: Approximately $8600 of our $64000 annual budget (13.5%) goes toward paying professional orchestra and band musicians to enhance our choral performances.
Storage for our music library: We have thousands of pieces of music that need to be in storage units that are climate-controlled, secure, and easily accessible. We currently pay $3000 per year to rent 2 storage units.
Accounting services: We rely on one of 55-60 members to serve as RCC Treasurer. It is very difficult to find a volunteer with the computer (Quickbooks) accounting, and tax-filing skills to fill this position. Our treasurer volunteers about 130 hours per year. One firm offered to provide accounting and tax-filing services for $3,000/year.
