AYO Scholarship Fund
Help Us Turn $5,000 into $10,000
The Richard L. and Diane M. Block Foundation
has generously awarded
AYO a matching grant designated for AYO 2019-2020 scholarships. We need to raise $5,000 to meet our match challenge, which will allow us to use up to $10,000 towards off-setting the cost of our program for those who cannot otherwise afford to participate.
With your help we can make more musical dreams come true!
Donors can give to the general fund or specify a musician they’d like to sponsor.
Make a Donation
A great way to help us is by making a donation we can use for whatever our dedicated young musicians need. 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.
