Thank you for considering a donation to the American Youth Philharmonic Orchestras (AYPO), named "One of the Best Small Nonprofits in the Greater Washington Region" by the Catalogue for Philanthropy.

When you give to AYPO, you provide a wealth of musical opportunities to hundreds of promising young musicians throughout our region, from training under stellar artistic staff, to performing some of the finest orchestral repertoire ever written. Your gift also allows AYPO to continue our work in the community, such as offering more than 1,000 free, weekly, private music lessons to underserved students in local public schools through our Music Buddies Mentorship program. And, finally, your support helps AYPO continue its Scholarship Program, which annually awards thousands of dollars to talented young musicians demonstrating financial need, giving these students the opportunity to participate in our highly competitive program.

Sample ways your gift can be used:

$100 - Pays for one sectional coaching session with a professional musician
$250 - Gives 25 underserved children free admission to an AYP concert
$500 - Underwrites one tuition Scholarship for one musician
$1,500 - Provides free private music lessons for 3 underserved students for one school year
$2,500 - Partially funds concert hall expenses for one AYPO concert

For a complete listing of how your gift can help AYPO, please visit our Individual Gifts page. For more information please contact the Executive Director: 703-642-8053, exec@aypo.org.

As a nonprofit organization listed under the IRS section 501(c)3, all donations made to AYPO are tax-deductible to the fullest amount allowed under law. You will receive a thank you letter for every donation you make to us for your tax purposes.
