We are deeply grateful to all of our donors, who bring joyful, engaging learning experiences to over 191,000 Maryland students each year.
Your support will provide over 7,000 high-quality, curriculum-aligned arts experiences to children of all ages this year alone, introducing them to a wide range of art forms — including Hip Hop dance, comic book illustration, African drumming and dance, Chinese calligraphy, and ceramic mural making — taught by professional artists.
Every gift is critical to creating the future where every student in Maryland has the opportunity to imagine, create, and realize their full potential through the arts. Read more about how your gift will directly impact students.
Every dollar counts. Please give generously today!
Make a generous gift of any amount to Young Audiences today. First time donors, on average, give $100. All gifts provide Maryland children with opportunities that spark their imaginations and joyfully prepare them for success in school!
For your convenience, we accept both check and credit card donations.

A match is an easy way to maximize the impact of your gift, and may double both your gift and the children reached.

Just $10 a month can have an even bigger impact than a one-time gift. Our monthly giving program, the Solstice Club, allows you to provide consistent and reliable funding through regular donations.

When you join the Solstice Club, you will join a special group of people who provide sustaining support of $10 or more each month to support arts programs for hundreds of thousands of Maryland students and professional development for teachers.
