We invite you to honor the individuals who have spent many hours of their lives dedicated to developing their musical skills, and who are looking forward to taking the stage this year to provide you with extraordinary concert performances of the world’s great classical music. Contributors (individuals, groups, or companies) will be acknowledged on our website and in our programs throughout the season.
A great way to help us is by making a donation. AYO strives to constantly increase and improve the opportunities available to our students, the visibility of our orchestras within our community, and the excellence of our orchestral groups. In order to keep our program vibrant and stable, we depend on contributions from individuals and local businesses. AYO is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization and all donations are tax-deductible.
Recurring gifts allow AYO to grow in an exciting way! Even small amounts make it easier to budget how we serve our students month to month while making the cost of giving more manageable. Please consider partnering with AYO to create amazing music in amazing places by becoming one of our monthly donors.
Sponsor a Chair
We invite you to show your support and enthusiasm for AYO by sponsoring a musician, section or conductor. With this unique, tax-deductible gift, you can let your child, grandchild, friend, student, etc., know how proud you are of their AYO accomplishments and musical education. Chair sponsors are listed in concert programs.
We invite you to donate an item or service for AYO’s annual silent-auction fundraiser held at the Alaska Center for the Performing Arts in conjunction with our May 5, 2018 concert.
Along with the Annual AYO Silent Auction, the Alaska Youth Symphony and Alaska Youth Philharmonic will be performing “Generations: Unity Through Music”. The evening will be a collaboration with the Anchorage Concert Chorus, ACC, showcasing Anchorage, Eagle River and Mat-Su Valley talent across the generations — the youth of AYO with the adults of ACC — coming together to present profound music. It will be an evening to remember and we hope you can join us!
The AYO’s mission is to build musicianship, inspire our youth to love music, offer enriching opportunities for music performance, and create a musical legacy that will sustain arts throughout the lives of our members and our communities. Funds raised at the auction are used for our scholarship program, concert production, instrument repairs, music rental, and other program costs.
We are a community-based, non-profit 501(c) (3) organization; therefore, contributions are tax-deductible. If you are able to contribute, we will gladly pick up your tax-deductible donation and provide you with a receipt.
