Other ways to support us
Amazon Smile Program
Amazon smile program directs .5% of the total of your amazon purchase to your charity/non-profit of choice. Choose to direct your donations to Waukesha Choral Union! There is no additional product cost to the consumer to participate. This is a community give-back initiative from Amazon that is much appreciated by groups like us! These dollars will supplement, not replace, "direct giving" donations that we have depended on for over 40 years!
Set up your Amazon app to donate to us:
1. Open the Amazon app on your phone
2. Select the main menu (=) & tap on "AmazonSmile" within Programs & Features
3. Select "Waukesha Choral Union" as your charity
4. Follow the on-screen instructions to activate AmazonSmile in the mobile app

Employer Charitable Match Programs
Many employers have a charitable match program available. These programs typically involve an employer matching a donation dollar for dollar (and sometimes more) and donating this to a charity/non-profit of your choosing. Because Waukesha Choral Union is a 501C3 non-profit organization, it is eligible for these types of programs! Check with your employer to verify if WCU is part of your specific program. If you donate through these programs, your donation can go even further towards supporting the arts in the Waukesha Community!
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
