Become a Dream Maker

Become a sponsor today. Your contribution can help young people follow their dreams by…

  • Providing scholarship money for students who cannot afford the GCYO tuition costs.
  • Providing private lesson scholarship money for gifted students to follow their dream of being a musician.
  • Putting young artists on a stage like the Peace Center Concert Hall or Gunter Theatre.

GCYO could not offer the range of experiences it does without the crucial assistance of our Association. You can help tremendously by becoming a GCYO sponsor!
