Supporting our young musicians simply takes a minimum donation of $25 for a year's membership. As a society member you will receive a quarterly newsletter with all the news of the orchestra, upcoming events, player and parent news, and lots more. Donations are entirely tax deductible.

Join the 300 individuals and businesses in our community who care about young people and music by joining the Greater Victoria Youth Orchestra Society. Your contribution helps us make music!

Endowments and Bursaries support the GVYO and its players.

The GVYO/Stuart Knussen Endowment Fund, named for our founding music director, was established with the purpose of sustaining the orchestra's operations. Tax deductible contributions (cash or cheque) to the GVYO Stuart Knussen Endowment may be made directly to the GVYO. Your donation to the Knussen Endowment benefits the orchestra as a whole.

Related to our internal Knussen Fund is the Victoria Foundation GVYO/Stuart Knussen Endowment, whose purpose is identical: the orchestra's sustainability. This Fund was established in 2007, with money from our internal Knussen Fund and matching grants from the BC provincial government. The Victoria Foundation acts as steward of the Fund, issuing endowment income to the orchestra semi-annually. The Victoria Foundation accepts donations of cash, stocks, mutual funds or bonds. If you choose to donate to the Foundation's GVYO/Stuart Knussen Endowment Fund, specify the Victoria Foundation GVYO/Stuart Knussen Endowment when making your donation. Note: while the Victoria Foundation continues to accept donations, the provincial Matching Grant Programme concluded in December 2009.
