Fundraising is the life's blood of any non-profit organization, and Pride of Portland Chorus is no exception. As the guardians of barbershop performing arts in the Portland area, we feature a variety of fundraising events throughout the year. Our yearly fundraisers are listed in the right-hand column of this page.
Our biggest and most successful event includes our annual show. Not only does the price of admission help defray facility costs but also adds to the war chest that funds regional and International competition expenses. The logistics of moving risers, insuring and storing equipment, and costuming a chorus this size--not to mention competition fees and organizational dues--is gargantuan, so our fundraising efforts are critical to our continued success.
In 2020 we had to cancel our big October "pre-International" show due to COVID-19 restrictions (luckily, our special guest quartet, Titanium, has already been rescheduled for 2021). Additionally, other smaller fundraising efforts have also taken a hit due to quarantine restrictions. HOWEVER, you can still support Pride of Portland through some of our ongoing donation programs shown below, and we'd appreciate any help you can give.
Thanks for supporting us and the arts!
