Fundraising for your Performance Tour



Performance tours are exciting and they are often a once in a lifetime trip for performers. Students often need help raising funds for their trip, why not organize some fundraising events to help offset the cost of your tour? Here are some ideas we put together to help you raise money for your trip. 

Fundraising concert– This traditional idea can always be relied upon to help bring in the cash. Friends, family and the local community will no doubt be as excited as you are, they will want to be part of the event and of course, hear the music for the tour. This also gives you a great opportunity to hone your repertoire and to do what you do best… perform!

Open Mic Night– Why don’t you get the community even more involved and ask them to come and sing or perform themselves. You can charge for both performers and spectators… and perhaps even discover your next group member!

Carol Singing – With the holidays fast approaching, what better way to raise funds and to share you music with the community than bringing it directly to their doors. You can also use this to practice for your tour and of course throw in a few holiday favorites!

The Encore Raffle – Luckily for groups who travel with Encore, we offer the opportunity to take advantage of our travel connections and we supply you with a trip for 2 to Paris. You can sell tickets at all your choir concerts or orchestra performances and to the community to raise even more funds for your trip. The raffle has been so successful in the past and groups have often raised $20,000 + to go towards the performance trip of a lifetime.

Whatever you do and however you decide to do it Encore Tours is here to help you. With years of experience we have all the advice you need to make your fundraising events a success. Check out our Pinterest account for more fundraising ideas!
