The YES Project goes to the balkans

$15,000 of $30,000 goal

Raised by 123 people in 8 months
Created September 30, 2018
In the Summer of 2019, The YES Project is taking 25 young people on a life-changing trip to Serbia and Macedonia, and we need your support! Youth will live with and learn from traditional musicians in both countries, and participate in 2 music festivals. 

By donating to this effort, you are supporting young people's joyful, rigorous practice of ensemble music, and helping build life-changing connections between youth of different cultures, religions, continents, languages, and socio-economic strata.

A grounding principle of this project is that we all go, or we don’t go. We are collectively raising enough money to cover the entire project cost, so that every young person who has committed to participating in Project Yes can take part.  We've already raised a big chunk from our closest supporters; we need your help to finish the job. A bonus: when you contribute via this Go Fund me site your contribution is tax deductible, thanks to the East European Folklife Center, which has generously offered to act as a fiscal sponsor for this project.

If we can't raise the funds we need for all of us to go, you'll be refunded your contribution.

Dear Supporters of the YES Project,

We’re writing today with great news! We have raised enough money to make the trip, and we just bought our plane tickets. We are so grateful to you for helping us make this happen; we can’t wait to tell you all about it when we return at the end of July.

You may have noticed that we’ve only reached about half of our campaign goal on GoFundMe. However, that doesn’t reflect out total donations because many supporters gave directly to the East European Folklife Center, our fiscal sponsor, without going through GoFundMe.

Once again, thank you all so much for helping us achieve what is certain to be an incredible experience of cultural exchange and musical learning!
