SVYS is a not-for profit organization which succeeds only with the support of its members and their families. Many activities are planned and carried out by volunteers. Each member family is asked to complete and return the volunteer form at the Family Orientation Meeting at beginning of the year. We appreciate help from community members, too!

SVYS Equipment Gofundme

Equipment Donation

Much of the equipment the percussionists use is old, broken, and often not able to be played. SVYS is currently forced to borrow equipment from another orchestra in the area. This was sufficient in the past, but as our organization grows in size and ability, we would like to offer more professional quality equipment to our musicians.

SVYS Equipment Donation

We have prioritized the equipment we need to update our percussion section. We will move down the priority list, and if we are able to purchase all items on the list with funds to spare, we will use additional money to fund tuition scholarships for our musicians requesting financial assistance.

To donate, please follow the GO FUND ME link for an equipment list with our priority of need for the various items. →
