Donate to HYP

Your gift can help make the dreams of these talented youth possible. Each school year, we face challenges of raising funds to help pay for expenses not covered by the school system such as transportation to and from music contests and special performances, special field trips, uniforms, music and contest entry fees.

Jane A. Gouker Endowment

Hoosier Youth Philharmonic founder and director Jane A. Gouker has been honored with the establishment of an endowment in her name through the Community Foundation of Bloomington Monroe County.

The endowment will enable the strings program in the Monroe County Community School Corp. to flourish, with an elementary strings program that leads into the middle school and high school orchestras in the school system. With uncertain financial times, now is the time to ensure that there is always a financial foundation for strings programs in the Monroe County Community School Corp.
