Fundraising

Fountain Valley High School enjoys a strong reputation of excellence in the Vocal Music Program. Due to the amount of concerts, tours, trips, and transportation needs, the VMPA is aware of the high costs of these expenses and the financial burden they can impose.

As a result, the VMPA offers a variety of simple and effective fundraisers throughout the year to offset that burden. Student Fundraising opportunities allow your student’s portion to be directly deposited in your student’s account. Our Contributions Coordinator, oversees these accounts and will keep you informed of the balances therein.

The VMPA believes it is essential that your student participate in these fundraising opportunities, which will enable them to experience all that the Vocal Music Program has to offer without a financial hardship for your family. Our Director’s philosophy is to never allow funds to prevent a hard-working student from full participation in all the Vocal Music Program has to offer.

The following fundraising opportunities are available to your student during the Vocal Music season:
