Subject: St. Charles Singers to receive grant from The Community Foundation of Fox River Valley
Summary: SCS receives a grant in the amount of $9,025 to be used for capital expenditures.
Professional chamber choir St. Charles Singers is pleased to announce the receipt of a grant in the amount of $9,025 to be used for capital expenditures. The board of directors and the administrative staff of SCS will use the funds granted to upgrade office technology, specifically purchasing new computers and software for a box office management system.
SCS Executive Director Kay Kendall says the staff deeply appreciates this generous gift. “Every day we are hindered in this office by an antiquated box office system, slow computers and technical equipment that is not interactive. The ability to upgrade all this equipment will allow us to work more efficiently and to better communicate with our audience, prospective audience, singers and donors. This gift will have a positive impact on nearly every aspect of our office routine. “
