Major gifts are the largest donations that a nonprofit receives. These donations are often used to fund specific projects, meet longer-term fundraising goals, or are applied to support significant advances in general programming to help an organization accomplish its mission. At the Tucson Youth Music Center, a major gift is any gift of $10,000 or more.
Major gifts may be Unrestricted, for use at the Board’s discretion where the need is greatest and/or to create new and innovative ways to deliver music education.
Major gifts may be Restricted for a specific purpose, such as:
A $1 million TYMC Music Education Endowment will ensure that the Tucson Youth Music Center has foundational resources for ongoing quality music education programming. Income from the endowment will be used to recruit and retain a diverse, high-caliber community of music teachers and provide them with the latest technology and proven teaching approaches.
The TYMC Music Education Endowment will bear in perpetuity the name of the generous Benefactor(s) and the recognition reserved for TYMC Major Donors.
A $500,000 Facility Acquisition Capital Gift would be a significant step toward placing TYMC in a centrally located facility that is properly equipped for quality music education. This facility will house TYMC music classes, administrative offices, conference and meeting rooms, and a performance and rehearsal space for programs and events.
Our new home will be a safe and welcoming space for TYMC students to discover the life transforming power of music education. The new home to TYMC will bear in perpetuity the name of the generous Benefactor(s) and the recognition reserved for TYMC Major Donors.
At TYMC, we take pride in the exceptional caliber of our teachers. A gift of $100,000 will ensure that TYMC is able to recruit and retain highly qualified teachers and provide necessary programmatic support for the entirety of a calendar year’s worth of music education. Creating a TYMC Teaching Fund will result in a naming opportunity for the generous Benefactor(s) and recognition reserved for TYMC Major Donors.
A gift of $50,000 will support a semester’s worth of music education programming at selected locations around Tucson.
A gift of $40,000 will support eight weeks of music education summer programming at selected locations around Tucson.
