Aloha a cappella Choral Music Fan...

Mahalo nui loa for attending concerts of The Waimea Consort over the years. We really appreciate our audiences! We love performing music in Waimea and Kohala, and we hope to expand to Hilo and Kona soon. We also hope that you will want to help us to continue to present concerts all over the Big Island.

The Waimea Consort has been performing early and modern a cappella music for our Big Island community for 17 years, yet this is our first email asking for donations. While all of the work to manage the choir and produce concerts is done by volunteers, some aspects require money: buying copyrighted music, paying rental for concert venues, insurance, etc.

Options for giving

•    through the “Give Aloha” program at Foodland during September 2015
•    by making online purchases at AmazonSmile
•    through donations directly to the Consort

Scroll down to read the details about each of these donation methods. The Consort is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, so all donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.

We will be performing again in early December, with the musical theme of Light!  Watch for an email with dates and locations. Hope to see you there!


Pat E. Pérez
President, Waimea Consort

Ways to Donate

Give Aloha – Foodland – September 2015

Give Aloha is Foodland’s Annual Community Matching Gifts Program, which honors Foodland’s founder, Maurice J. “Sully” Sullivan, and continues his legacy of giving back to the community.

During September, customers of Foodland (and Sack N Save) may make donations up to $249 to participating Hawaii non-profit organizations at checkout.  Individuals must use their own Maikaʻi card to make a donation. Foodland and the Western Union Foundation will match a portion of each donation made with a Maikaʻi card. Donations made without a Maikaʻi card will not be matched. The Consort’s code number is: 78816.

Special Considerations:

For donations of $500, a subset of the Consort will sing at your private event – whether it be carols for Christmas, love songs for an engagement party, or a happy mix for a birthday party. You also could gift a performance elsewhere, such as to a retirement home or hospital.

For donations of $1000 or more, we will work with you to design an entire event featuring our special brand of choral music. We can even round out your special event with heavy pupus, depending upon the venue.

Donations will be acknowledged in the concert program of a future concert, unless you prefer that your gift remain anonymous.

All donations to the Waimea Consort are tax deductible. If you have questions, please call 808-238-5978 or reply to this email.
