ORPUS CHRISTI WATERSHED has no paid employees and no endowment. We are all volunteers. One of my duties is asking for donations, and frankly I hate asking for money! But without our donors—who usually give $5.00 per month—we could not continue our work. 1
Today I will try a different fundraising approach. I will create five articles with examples of Watershed productions—and hopefully some readers will be inspired to give $5.00 per month. We need your help!
Here’s the first example, recorded by myself and a friend yesterday evening:
* * PDF • KYRIE PART “A” Francisco Guerrero (d. 1599)
REHEARSAL VIDEOS :
EQUAL VOICES : YouTube • Mp3 Audio
HOW MANY DONATIONS will come in? Only our Lord knows, and we’re happy to leave this in His Hands. In the past, our work has seemed to please the Lord, Who has taken care of us in miraculous ways.
NOTES FROM THIS ARTICLE:
1 Even though we don’t have employees, we require funding for numerous things: backing up internet servers; purchasing old hymnals for scanning; various service fees such as MyEmma (for the CCW mailing list); and so forth. People would be amazed to learn how much work it is just to maintain what we have begun.
This article is part of a series:
PART 1 • Simple SATB Kyrie by Guerrero
PART 2 • 1913 Woodward Hymnal … Outrageously Rare!
PART 3 • Rehearsal videos for Lenten Hymn
PART 4 • New Westminster Hymnal … For the first time ever!
