FYC receives no public funding and relies for income on member subscriptions, ticket sales and the generosity of private and corporate benefactors. Our aim is to keep membership subscriptions to a minimum so that young people are not prevented from joining FYC for financial reasons. We are very proud not to have increased subscriptions for eight consecutive years, but our costs are increasing, as are the ambitions of our three choirs.

We are aiming to raise £60,000 to help us deliver our plans through to 2021. 

Every donation helps, and for just £10 per month you could become an FYC patron.
