Thank you for supporting El Sistema USA! FY19

El Sistema USA is dedicated to supporting social change through music for students with the fewest resources and the greatest need. Your dollars can do amazing work by supporting the work of El Sistema USA!  We are growing to provide comprehensive information on the El Sistema movement in the U.S. and its evolving philosophy and methodology.

By supporting El Sistema USA, you are supporting:

  • A growing member base - currently at 110+ programs in 32 states who serve close to 20,000 students
  • Regional gatherings – like Regional Seminarios and our 2019 National Symposium in January that bring teaching artists, students, and administrators together.
  • Initiatives and programs that support the growth of new and emerging El Sistema-inspired programs around the country - like PRESTO (Program for Rising El Sistema Organizations) that supports 13 organizations around the US with funding, mentorship, and capacity development.
  • Continuing education - including monthly webinars for members and a growing resource library.

Help us to support El Sistema USA programs nationwide. Your generosity will allow El Sistema USA and its members to continue to use music as a vehicle for social change. Your support will enhance the efforts of programs across the country and ensure that more students have access to the transformative effects of music education.
