Each year, the Cincinnati Boychoir reaches boys from across the Greater Cincinnati region, and we strive to make our program accessible to all boys, regardless of need. Your gift has a very real and lasting impact on the many boys that experience our program.
The Value of Your Gift:
$30 - One complete music binder for a season
$50 - One snazzy Boychoir bow tie
$100 - Cultural retreat for one boy
$250 - Accompanist for one showcase performance
$500 - Sponsor the regional tour fees for one JourneyMen or DeltaChor boy
$1000 - Sponsor full tuition fee for one Ambassador
Tuition only covers about 30% of what it costs to participate in the Boychoir. And about 30% of our families request financial assistance each year. We rely on the generous support from donors like you. And truly any amount - large or small - helps!
How to Give:
The Cincinnati Boychoir is a 501(c)(3) organization. Your contribution is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
The Randall Wolfe Scholarship Fund was founded during the 2015 Cincinnati Boychoir 50th Anniversary Season to honor the many years of service of our longest-serving director.
This revolving fund supports boys who exhibit dedication to the pursuit of musical excellence, demonstrate leadership qualities, and whose participation in Boychoir embodies a passion for our mission.
This is a competitive, merit-based scholarship that must be applied for and is awarded annually in the Fall to boys enrolled in JourneyMen, DeltaChor or Ambassadors. Full or partial tuition scholarships may be awarded.
Applications will be made available to boys enrolling in the next available Fall session. This scholarship is subject to fund availability, and will be offered annually when possible.
Founded by a generous gift from Mrs. Jean Clipson, the Maxwell Scholarship Fund is named for Mrs. Clipson's great-grandfather, Lawrence Maxwell, who was a president of the Cincinnati May Festival, and a lifelong supporter of vocal music in Cincinnati. Jean’s grandson, Robert Maxwell Pauly, is a Boychoir alumnus and her son Lawrence Pauly was a member of the Men’s Glee Club and is a current member of the Boychoir’s Board of Trustees.
The annual earnings on this endowed fund currently allow us to cover the tuition for up to two boys each year who demonstrate both financial need and whose participation in Boychoir embody a passion for our mission.
This is a competitive, need-based scholarship that must be applied for and is awarded annually in the Fall. All boys are eligible to apply for this scholarship.
Mrs Heather Lally served the Boychoir first as a choir parent to alumni Sean ('05-'10) and Ryan ('09-'17), and then as Chorus Manager from 2012 to 2020, where she became matriarch to all boys who passed through the Boychoir.
Mrs Lally has been the internal face, the glue, and the heart and soul of this organization during her tenure. Her mantra, “we can do hard things”, bore out in her tireless efforts to manage the boys through rehearsals, performances, and tours all over the world.
This fund will be used to “save the day” for boys in need by helping to cover gaps in program, tour and/or uniform costs, or to cover small one-off expenses as they arise. Funds will be awarded as they are available and at the discretion of the Financial Assistance Committee. Funds may be distributed at any time during the season to any Boychoir boy, and need not be applied for.
Boychoir Games is game-themed crowdfunding for the Cincinnati Boychoir, and fund drives occur at multiple times throughout the year. Check back for more details about upcoming events.
Tuition and performance revenue account for approximately 30% of the Boychoir’s annual operating income; individual, corporate, and foundation contributions help to cover the rest. Contributions to the annual fund are used to cover general Boychoir operating expenses.
