Many employers encourage employees to donate to nonprofit organizations by matching charitable contributions. You can check with your employer’s Human Resources Department for information on your employer’s specific matching gift program. Simply complete the matching gift form provided by your employer and send it to DCYOP with your contribution. This is a great way to increase the impact of your gift!

DCYOP is also a member of the United Way of the National Capital Area’s Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) – a workplace giving campaign that gives employees the opportunity to support eligible nonprofit organizations. To support DCYOP through the United Way use CFC #88347 or United Way #8672.

DCYOP welcomes in-kind donations of new or gently used music instruments for our Children’s Orchestra Project. One of the major barriers for families is the cost of renting an instrument which can be more than the tuition. If you are considering making a donation, please contact our Development Director at maya@dcyop.org or 202-698-0123 ext 703 before sending the instruments to make sure your donation can be matched to a student and to set up a delivery time.

Gifts of stocks and securities can be made with your broker’s assistance. Simply request your broker to transfer the stated number of shares electronically to the DCYOP using the details below:

Your company can partner with DCYOP by supporting DCYOP’s annual fund, underwriting a specific program (Children’s Orchestra; Pre-Orchestra Project; Summer Program), or sponsoring a free concert.

Please consider including a gift to the DC Youth Orchestra Program in your will or estate plans. Your future gift could make a significant difference to the program’s ability to offer the best musical instruction to hundreds of DC area students during their K-12 years.

DC Youth Orchestra Program is a 501(c)(3) organization. EIN 52-6059783

If you are age 70 ½ or above, you may have a retirement plan that requires you to take a minimum distribution and pay income tax on the amount. You could make a wonderful gift to DCYOP through an “IRA charitable rollover” where you direct a gift of up to $100,000 from your retirement plan to the organization and avoid paying income tax in addition to supporting the young musicians of DC.

Also your retirement plan is generally the most heavily taxed asset in your estate. If you are charitably minded, designate all or a portion of your retirement plan as a bequest to support DCYOP thereby avoiding taxes while leaving other assets for family members.
