How to support the CVPAF

facebookAre you interested in supporting the CVPAF?  There are several ways you can help:

CVPAF MEMBERSHIP NETWORK: The CVPAF offers a collaborative membership network for youth based performing arts services throughout the Cowichan Valley.

The CVPAF Membership Network is a two-tier network membership with each level offering great membership benefits:

  1. General Membership ($25/year)
  2. Executive Member ($50/year)

The CVPAF membership network option is open to all performing arts service providers in the Cowichan Valley. Each CVPAF member will receive regular CVPAF communication via digital correspondence including newsletters, meeting minutes and all other public communication regarding the CVPAF. Every member is invited and encouraged to attend all monthly board meetings and is especially encouraged to attend the annual AGM. Executive members will be eligible to vote on CVPAF board motions and all members are also welcome to join one of the CVPAF committees. To apply, please complete the CVPAF Membership Application 2015

DONATION SUPPORT: You can also donate to CVPAF. Any amount is very much appreciated and 100% of your money will go directly to support kids in the performing arts. And the CVPAF is now a registered charity under the Canada Revenue Act (83476 8681 RR0001) which means you will be issued an official tax receipt for your donation (minimum donation of $25 required).

EVENTS: The CVPAF hosts several fundraising events throughout the year to build up the reserves of our donation pool assigned for bursaries and scholarships. These events include performing arts shows, beer & burger nights, raffles, silent auctions, contribution kiosks and partnership programs. Our event calendar is posted on our Facebook page and details are also tweeted to our followers on Twitter.
