YOUR CONTRIBUTION IS VITAL
The heart of the SCVYO mission is our goal to be an indispensable partner to the Santa Clarita Valley cultural arts community. We rely on the generosity of our corporate sponsors and individual donors to continue the outstanding quality of instruction and performances our city has come to expect. Your tax-deductible donation ensures we are able to continue providing exemplary musical education and performance opportunities to our youth, offer access to all young musicians from beginners through advanced college students; regardless of ability to pay, and keep classical music alive and thriving in our community with inspiring concerts performed in the beautiful Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center and events throughout our town. Material fees and grants account for less than 35% of our total operating budget, leaving the remaining gap to be filled by contributions. The generosity of all our donors makes it possible for us to provide our community with educational programs, artistic excellence and much more.
The SCVYO is now partnered with Amazon Smile. Every purchase you make helps to keep the music alive! Use the Amazon badge and choose Santa Clarita Valley Youth Orchestra as the charitable organization you wish to support - then shop as usual! Thanks for your support!
