Support us

The arts enhance the lives of young musicians, contribute to their personal development, and bring joy to our community.

Why support TYWO?
Your help allows us to provide an unparalleled program of music education and performance opportunities – something we’ve been doing with the support of the community since 1991. Membership fees cover only 40% of our operating budget. Ticket sales, gifts from individuals, businesses and foundations cover the rest. We can’t do it without you.

How can you help?

COME TO A CONCERT! Ticket sales are a large part of our funding. Plus, you’ll find TYWO merchandise sales (recordings, clothing, etc.) and our Loblaws gift card program at each concert…and it all helps support the organization.


  • Donate now by clicking on the Canada Helps icon at the top of the screen or by going to and enter “TYWO.” Click on Toronto Youth Wind Orchestra and “Donate Now”. It’s secure, immediate and provides you with a charitable donation receipt for tax purposes.
  • Or contact TYWO directly to make a donation via PayPal, or by cheque.
  • Make a donation to our annual silent auction (cash, goods or services are all appreciated!).
  • Consider a gift to our Endowment Fund – as a personal bequest or to honour the memory of a loved one. Your support of this fund allows us to provide scholarships and bursaries to deserving young musicians and supports our ongoing program offerings.

GET YOUR COMPANY INVOLVED. Many employers offer matching funds to charitable employee initiatives. TYWO gratefully acknowledges support at performances, in our printed programs and on our website.

GIVE TIME. Our volunteers are critical to our organization, helping throughout the season at concerts and behind the scenes. Parents, high school students and supporters of the arts are all welcome additions to our team.
