Amazing Coupon books

Most people in Calgary are very familiar with these coupon books – they are very reasonably priced and have lots of popular coupons inside.


BOTTLE DRIVE [September and April] 

Each year we set out to do our part for the environment and raise some money at the same time during this super-fun one-day fundraiser. Choristers and parent drivers canvas designated neighborhoods asking for bottle donations; other parent volunteers hang out at the bottle depot working on their counting and sorting skills! It's amazing how much you can raise in such a short time frame.



If you already subscribe to a magazine or two, this one is simple. By ordering new subscriptions or renewing your favourites through Cantaré, it costs you NO MORE, yet the profit stays in our choir community. There are over 700 magazines to choose from and magazines make great gifts! You can renew a magazine from the selection online anytime during the current season; Cantaré Children's Choir benefits from all subscriptions ordered until the end of the season. 

Visit:, Cantaré Campaign Code: AB2501.



These two projects are one that you DON'T want to miss. Our growerprovides INCREDIBLE quality and very competitive prices for something that everyone usually purchases in the Spring. Those who didn't order were extremely disappointed when they saw the exceptional quality. Lilies and Hydrangeas are delivered just before Easter. We aim for delivery of the Bedding Out plants in late May. You can either add to Golden Acres' profit margin or you can help the choir!



Gift cards for CO-OP and Safeway are on sale at every rehearsal.  Five percent of all grocery cards you buy or sell earns credit towards your child’s tour cost this summer, or helps to support Cantaré Children’s Choir. This is a great way to raise funds while purchasing the things you would be buying anyway!  You can let us know your order in advance, and we’ll be sure to have your gift cards ready and waiting for you at sign in. 



Cantaré Children's Choir Society held its last casino in June2015.  Although the money earned is restricted in its use, many of our expenditures do qualify. Our next casino fundraiser is scheduled forFebruary 14-15, 2017.. 



Looking for a fun night out – just adults – and a chance to support Cantaré?  Dinner, drinks, 50/50 and a silent auction all wrapped into one. Choir families and local businesses donate items; everyone gets the chance to go home with something special!  Our 2012 Pub Night earned over $8200 in profits.



These ever-popular and very delicious Calgary made sausages will be available for BBQ season.



Invest in Success


Invest in Success

As a community children's choir program, we rely on the support that is so generously provided to us by individuals, businesses and corporate donors.  If you or your business is interested in helping to enrich the lives of Calgarians, please consider making a donation to our program.  Our needs range from bursaries and music library acquisitions (in memory of a loved one or in honour of a special occasion!) to capital acquisitions and tour funding.

Cantaré Children's Choir is incorporated as a non-profit organization in the province of Alberta and is recognized by Revenue Canada as a charitable organization.  As such, we issue Income Tax Receipts for gifts and charitable donations.  Please contact our office to coordinate your donation. 

Become a donor

Cantare Children's Choir is known for the exceptional way it fosters growth in our young singers so that each child can be nurtured in their musical, educational, leadership, and social development. Cantare's many successes are built not only by the dedication and efforts of our singers, but also on the unwavering support of our families, volunteers, community groups, governmental agencies businesses, and corporations.

We invite you to make an 'investment in success' through your contribution to one of our funds:

Artistic Director's Discretionary Fund

Enables many creative ideas to come to fruition... this includes commissioning composers to write new music for the choir, enabling artistic collaborations, recordings, touring, as well as bolstering recruitment and outreach to bring more children to cantare.

Music Library Fund

Enables the purchase of music resources for all of our ensembles. Sponsor music to celebrate an occasion, in memory/honor of a loved one, or just because. Music library donors are listed alongside the pieces they sponsor in programs they are performed on as well as recognized on the sheet music used by our choristers.

Bursary Fund

Enables choristers with limited financial resources to participate in the choir experience from rehearsals to retreats and touring. Even the smallest amount can go a long way in making music more accessible for a child.

Performance fund

Enhances the experience for singers and audiences through the addition of instrumentalists, purchase of new instruments, staging, lighting name a few.

Card Fund

Send a card to someone special letting them know a donation has been made in their honor. They receive a personalized card with your message an you will receive a tax receipt. Suitable for birthdays, anniversaries, condolences, in memory of, thank you, in appreciation, or just because!
