April 27, 2020 — Although the FWD was able to get out of many of the financial obligations we had pre-paid for the contest, the FWD is still facing a shortage of money compared to the successful balances we used to enjoy. The FWD is committed to supporting chapter, chorus and quartet musical achievements, and providing educational services, leadership and assistance to members and chapters. We are unable to credit what you’ve paid for the cancelled Spring events towards the Fall registrations. Our systems just can’t do that, so we’re going to propose to you an opportunity to help the FWD by donating those registration fees to the District. You may:
We’re sure many of us are financially hurting, so if you need a refund, we’ll happily send it your way. If, on the other hand, you are comfortable and generous enough to donate the registration fee to the FWD, it will be appreciated and you’ll get a receipt for your tax-deductible donation to our non-profit organization.
We request that you respond by May 31; otherwise we will assume you wish to make a full donation and will accept it with our thanks.
