Financial Responsibility | Fundraising

Financial Obligation

Membership dues are outlined in the materials provided at registration. To view this information, please log on to member site. You will find login information at the bottom of the weekly newsletter or you may contact the office for assistance. Fees can be reduced partially or entirely by participation in the "SCRIP" program and other fundraising programs listed below.  Other fundraising programs also earn credit, which are applied against individual accounts.  


Scrip is a certificate issued by a merchant and purchased through CYS that allows you to buy merchandise equal to the face of the certificate. Families receive a percentage of the face value of the certificate as credit to a musician's account.  It is entirely possible to pay all membership dues and even tour with scrip alone! Scrip sales for the Wind Symphony will take place at all CYS concerts.

Concert Program

Having an attractive and comprehensive concert program is not only important to ourselves and our audiences, but it enhances our image in the community as well. Since producing concerts at such premier locations as the Smithwick Theatre or the Flint Center costs us many thousands of dollars per year, it is essential that the local business community help support us through advertising. We encourage each CYS family to make a special effort to sell at least one NEW ad this season.  Individual musician’s accounts will receive credit based on the schedule below. Ads appearing for the second and subsequent years will be renewed by the CYS Office.

Credit earned for selling NEW ads is as follows:

1/8 page ad (4.5"x1" or 2.25"x2") $160 $30
1/4 page ad (4.5"x2") $235 $50
1/2 page ad (4.5"x4") $345 $75
Full page ad (5"x8") $460 $100
Inside Cover ad (5"x8") $485 $100

There are two (2) points to stress when selling an ad:

  • GOODWILL - CYS is worthy of support, having provided musical opportunities for thousands of young people for over 60 years. 
  • VALUE - programs are seen by thousands of audience members, alumni, funders, and other supporters throughout the year. 

Click on the image to the right to print an advertising sales form.  Feel free to make more copies.  Be sure to cut off the bottom portion and give that to the advertiser as a receipt.  Return the upper portion, along with the copy material, to the CYS office.  CYS will bill the advertiser.  "Camera ready" (copy materials that we do not have to typeset) is preferred but not mandatory.  For small ads, a business card is sufficient. For further details on format, please refer to the Advertise page on our website.

Showing the advertiser last season's concert program should help them decide which type of ad they might prefer. Please feel free to contact Judy Chan,, if you have any questions.
