Our seven youth ensembles connect families to the life-altering power of musical performance, both in the Pikes Peak Region and around the world. Whether they’re playing at our home base, the Pikes Peak Center, or far afield in New York’s Carnegie Hall, New Zealand, China, Australia, Bulgaria or Japan, our students benefit from the most comprehensive instrumental music program for youth in this part of the country.
Thanks to our Give! donors, we have been able to expand our Mozart String Project for string instruction in school districts that do not have their own orchestra programs, and we have been able to bring our concerts to more local audiences that have limited exposure to live orchestral music. It’s a win-win for our 450 participants and the 20,000 people we play for every year!

The "cover my transaction fee" option allows you to donate money to offset the processing fee VISA, Mastercard etc. charge us for each credit card transaction on indygive.com. Normally those costs are covered by Give! and a few generous underwriters, but with a goal of raising $1 million this year, that's $30,000 in fees! It's a nice way of supporting Give! directly if you like what we do for nonprofits in Colorado Springs, but it's by no means obligatory or expected. Either way, we appreciate your support of our 59 participating organizations!
Thanks for giving us your birth year. There is a special matching grant available to the organization in each category that garners the most donations from folks in their 20's and 30's. One of the big focuses of this campaign is to encourage younger citizens to become more active donors.
To reach our $1 million goal, the community needs to raise at least $678,000 by midnight on Dec. 31, 2013.
