Support Youth Music Illinois with Caterpillar Foundation Matching
Youth Music Illinois exists to serve the needs of our young musicians. While YMI does charge tuition, those fees only cover approximately 40% of the total cost per student each season. Furthermore, we strive to make our program accessible to any hard-working young musician through need-based tuition scholarships.
The amount you donate will be used to further the mission of YMI – to mentor area youth to develop skills for both music and life through the power of live performance. Donations are used to fund scholarships, hire coaches, rent concert halls, and so much more. Youth Music Illinois is a 501(c)(3) organization, thus your donation is tax deductible.
