Recently, the YYO board challenged other to give with a $2,500 match. This means that between now and Tuesday, November 28, every dollar the YYO receives up to $2,500 will be doubled. Every contribution gets us closer to that goal, no matter the size. When we raise $2,500, that turns into $5,000—thanks to the generosity of our board.
The Ypsilanti Youth Orchestra provides students the opportunity to make music in an atmosphere of creation, motivation, cooperation, and friendship, while developing team-building and communication skills in a safe and supportive setting, and serves more than 200 youth of diverse backgrounds and socioeconomic status by remaining tuition-free for students and families.
Thank you for giving, and Remember: It's all for the children!
