The National Youth Orchestra of Canada

Join the National Youth Orchestra of Canada and thousands of other charities across North America, November 27 for #givingtuesday. Gifts for this event will go to our endowment and are triple-matched through the CCIF and a private donor. Your gift will help us build a sustainable future for young orchestral musicians in Canada.

Each year, we invite 95 musicians 16 and 28 years old, from across Canada to take on the challenge of 8 weeks of intensive training over the summer, and then to take on a Canadian and International tour.  We do this at no cost for tuition or travel, and we offer each and every one of them a scholarship to offset expenses. The highest level of one on one training, rehearsals and performance we offer simply would not be possible anywhere else.

You can help these deserving students reach for their dreams.

Building a permanent endowment is the key to our future. For one day only, your gifts are triple -matched through the Canadian Cultural Investment Fund and from a private donor. We are asking our donors- old and new - to gift a gift of any size to help us reach that goal. Make every dollar count for the future.

Contribute here, at any time - or by sending a cheque to 59 Adelaide St East, Toronto ON M5C 1K6 (be sure to write in the memo line #givingtuesday, so we can secure your match) in the month of November.
