GDYO Guild

What Is the GDYO Guild?

The GDYO Guild is a voluntary organization that supports the GDYO mission and provides volunteers and funding for program enhancements. Since tuition covers only about 37% of the organization’s operational expenses, the money raised through membership dues, donations and fundraising provides essential revenue.

The Guild is crucial to the success of the GDYO organization. Guild officers organize parent volunteers, who serve snacks at rehearsals, assist with special events, assist fundraising efforts such as merchandise sales, mail newsletters and offer valuable office support.
