Ticket sales and orchestra membership dues and fees cover only one third of DYAO’s operating budget. We must fill this budgetary void with contributions from foundation sources and individual donors like you to maintain our programs. Please consider a generous donation and know that you are investing in a prestigious and award-winning music education institution and the close to 300 children it serves annually. There are many ways to contribute including corporate sponsorships, foundation grant opportunities and fundraising events. Choose what you enjoy; there are many ways to support the DYAO through donations, sponsorships and volunteering.
