Shopping Benefit Programs
The NSCS has been financially sound primarily because of the strong support of its members, their families and friends, and appreciative audience members. There are several programs which can generate income for the Choral Society.
iGive and AmazonSmile
You can save money by shopping on-line and support the North Shore Choral Society at the same time! Place your orders through iGive.com and a percentage of the purchase price will be automatically donated to the North Shore Choral Society at no cost to you. There are now over 1,000 participating merchants from Abt Appliances to Zale's, including Amazon.com, Cooking.com, Expedia, Harry & David, Lands'End, Orbitz, and QVC. Follow the "Join iGive.com" link at the left to join, which already designates the North Shore Choral Society as your charity; then shop at the "mall." The simple process is described on the iGive.com web site.
You can designate NSCS as your charity of choice for Amazon at the link below — then Amazon will make a donation to us of .5% for most purchases when you purchase through smile.amazon.com.
Go to AmazonSmile through IGive and we get donations from both for each purchase!
Jewel Gift Cards
NSCS can sell these cards to anyone. Members can bring in orders from neighbors, family and friends.
This costs YOU nothing but the face value of the card; the donation to NSCS comes from Jewel-Osco when NSCS buys the cards.
