Financial Assistance

The Itasca Orchestra and Strings Program strives to make our program affordable to all. Program fees are priced below cost thanks to generous financial support. For those who require additional help making the program affordable for their family, we have three forms of financial assistance. Please contact our managing director Buffy Dege if you have questions at [email protected]

If your family income is low, you may qualify for 75% off your program fees through Minnesota Afterschool Advance. They have individuals available to help you through the process. If you need additional assistance, please reach out to our office or the Minnesota Afterschool Advance facilitators.
