Support youth arts education at YMA, and #GiveGalen!


Set up a monthly recurring donation to YMA by Dec. 31, and we’ll give you the gift of Galenexclusive swag featuring Galen’s kind eyes and legendary grace.

YMA Camp Director Galen embodies the spirit of YMA—a magical blend of love, acceptance, support, and altruism, combined with a passion for helping young people grow into their most joyful, creative selves.

Your $10/month contribution entitles you to a Galen t-shirt*. For $5/month, a Galen tote bag is all yours. Wear or carry Galen and you'll be bringing a piece of YMA with you everywhere you go!

Galen swag makes a great holiday gift, or keep it for yourself to wear all over town. It's sure to be a hit with your favorite YMAer!

Why give to YMA? Young Musicians & Artists has spent 53 years providing young people with unforgettable experiences in the visual and performing arts, and friendships that last a lifetime. 

All gifts to YMA provide need-based financial aid unless otherwise specified. With your support, our students receive more than $60,000 in need-based financial aid annually.

These generous scholarships support a deserving student's experience at camp. It's a win-win!

So what are you waiting for? It's time to #GiveGalen!

*T-shirt sizes adult S-XL (just like at camp); subject to availability.
