Support GGP

Your support of Golden Gate Philharmonic Youth Orchestra is both needed and greatly appreciated. GGP provides a remarkable multi-faceted program for our students 5-18 from over 35 schools throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.  We strive to maintain an enrollment of approximately 100 students, and we are proud never to have turned a student away for inability to pay.  We offer scholarships based on need, typically, about 20% of enrollment.

Tuition alone covers just half of our expenses. We rely on contributions from institutions that support youth art and music programs as well as individual donors to offset the cost of maintaining multiple level orchestras and related music education programs.  Donor support allows us to offer all the current opportunities to our musicians, offer scholarship assistance, and explore opportunities to further the music education opportunities, all while keeping tuition as low as possible.

Please show your appreciation and support for GGP by contributing now. Your donation of any amount is fully tax-deductible and will make a difference in enriching the lives of current and future students.
