AmazonSmile: Do you frequently shop online through Amazon? If so, you can select Philadelphia Youth Orchestra as your non-profit recipient through AmazonSmile and the AmazonSmile Foundation will send PYO funds equal to 0.5% of your purchases. This small change adds up quickly when multiplied across our entire support base and is an easy way to give back to PYO simply by clicking a button. Visit smile.amazon.com, search for Philadelphia Youth Orchestra, and select us as your chosen charitable organization to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. Amazon will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make at smile.amazon.com will result in a donation for us.
Concert Ticket Sales: Help support our tickets sales initiatives by spreading the word to your communities. Social media is a useful and easy tool to use to spread the word about upcoming performances, allowing us to grow our audiences throughout the region (see below for social media links).
Ad Campaigns: Do you know a business, school, music festival/program, or local event that would like to get a message to our audiences? Encourage them to directly connect with our community by placing an advertisement in our Festival Book and/or concert programs. Ads come in various options and price points to fit all needs.
Photography Sales: At select concerts and events throughout the year, our photographers will offer photos for sale to our families. When you purchase one of these photos, the photographer will pledge 30% of all sales to the PYO organization, adding up to hundreds of dollars in additional revenue for our financial aid fund.
Volunteer: Volunteers are invaluable to our organization and help with concert production support, receptions, our annual gala, administrative needs, music library assistance, and other needs that arise throughout the year.
If you have interest in volunteering for the PYO organization, fill out our volunteer interest form and mark the areas where you would like to help us and email, fax, or mail to us at the addresses provided.
Share Your News With Us: Our students are the most important part of all our programs and we love to hear about their success so that we can share with the greater community. If your child is performing a recital, was accepted into a competitive summer program, or has just finalized their college plans after PYO, please spread the word to us!
