Join our #ONLYATYAA Year-End Giving Campaign….Named in honor of all the unique opportunities that YAA offers students that they, quite literally, can’t find anywhere else:

  • Studying with world class mentors like Jason Robert Brown, Steven Schwartz, and…this year, Alan Menken!

  • Performing alongside Broadway stars like Kristin Chenoweth and Mathrew Morrison

  • Taking the stage at world class venues like Strathmore and Kennedy Center

  • Participating in EMMY Award-Winning TV Specials

We have set an abitious goal to rais $45,000 by the end of 2019.

Three angel donors have generousley offered to match each individual donation up to a total of $20,000 so for every $1 that you donate, YAA receives $2!

BUT - Here’s the tricky part…this year, the match kicks in only if everyone participates! So, we are asking everyone to give, even if it’s just $5, so we can hit our mark of donations from 90% of currently registered YAA families.

Donations are tax-deductible.

YAA is an independent, non-profit organization with a limited budget that doesn’t always correspond with the big dreams we have for our talented students. Your donation, no matter the size, can help us make a student’s dream a reality! Thank you!

Thank you for considering supporting Young Artists of America. We invite you to scroll down to learn more about how you can support our extraordinary programming and educational initiatives.

Young Artists of America is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. All donations are tax deductible to the extent of the law. 

It is only through the generosity of people like you that Young Artists of America at Strathmore is able to continue its high quality artistic programming, provide unique educational experiences for our students, attract the highest caliber of mentors possible for our students, and provide tuition assistance to students who would not otherwise be able to participate. 

We hope you will consider becoming a Supporting Member of Young Artists of America at Strathmore. 

I will carry the skills I learned here throughout the rest of my life.

Donating appreciated securities such as stocks or mutual funds is a smart and easy way to support Young Artists of America. Just as with cash gifts, you will receive a federal income tax donation for the full market value of any securities you donate as long as you have owned them for at least one year. You may also avoid the capital gains taxes you would owe if you sold these securities.

There are many different ways to plan your gift to our organization, many of which can save you taxes now, reduce the tax burden on your estate, provide lifetime income to you (or another),  and provide a generous ultimate gift to Young Artists of America.

For more information on planned giving opportunities or gifts of stock, please contact Executive Director, Lisa Larragoite at (301) 272-8604, x700.
