SDWC believes in the power of music and the power of women to change the world and we have two specific funds that will help us realize that vision.
Support the Colleen Osburn Gratitude Scholarship
Singing member Paula Tallal created the Colleen Osburn Gratitude Scholarship this year in honor of her wife, who passed away July 5, 2014. The beautiful music and welcoming community of SDWC brought joy and comfort into their lives and it is our hope that this scholarship fund will enable women with financial barriers to join our chorus by paying for membership dues, music fees and retreat costs. Any amount you can give will help a woman add her voice and light to our sisterhood of singers.

Contribute to the Chris Allen Memorial Music Fund
We have also created the Chris Allen Memorial Music Fund which will help us continue to create the highest-quality musical experience we can for all of our performances. Our music is our activism and these funds will help us reach the hearts and minds of our audiences in a powerful, polished way. Donations to this fund will help us cover expenses such as hiring talented local instrumentalists, holding vocal workshops for singing members and commissioning unique choral arrangements.
