Refunds, Returns, and Cancellation Policies
Like most charitable organizations, VCS does not issue refunds. Therefore all financial transactions including donations to the Friends of VCS, payment of registration fees, purchase of repertoire (i.e, sheet music that singers need to perform at concerts), or purchase of sponsorships are considered non-refundable and cannot be returned or cancelled.
