Playathon 18/19

Welcome to our fundraising site!

Check out our newest NJYS fundraiser - Cards for a Cause!

Thank you for taking the first step toward helping us to reach our goal! Interested in helping us raise funds? From this site, you can register for our fundraiser, join a team (your NJYS ensemble), set a goal, and begin raising money in support of our cause! You can also donate to our fundraisers or search for other participants and donate toward their goals.

As you may know, tuition only covers 75% of what it costs to be a part of this transformational orchestra program. As a nonprofit organization, our mission is to provide the best music education we can to all, including those who may not be able to pay. In addition to writing grants and hosting special events, each year we ask YOU—our students and families—to raise funds through the largest student-led fundraiser of its kind, the Playathon! This year's goal is to raise $110,000!

The funds raised at Playathon will be used:

• To provide tuition assistance
• To purchase and maintain musical instruments such as percussion instruments and those needed for doubling 
• To provide the opportunity to perform in venues such as the New Jersey Performing Arts Center and the State Theatre in New Brunswick
• To provide high-quality coaches to offer an even greater learning experience 

Please register as a parent and/or donor unless you have already created an account, then search for the student you want to sponsor! If you have any questions please contact Development Associate Allison Arnold at 908-790-0700 or e-mail her at

Thanks again for keeping the music alive at NJYS! We invite you to attend our Playathon Music Festival as all of our ensembles come together to perform as one at the Mills at Jersey Gardens on Sunday, March 31st 2019 at 1:00pm.

We hope to see you there!
