Donate to Torrey Pines Music

Donate online at Torrey Pines High School Foundation

Donations are essential to the music program at Torrey Pines.  The program gets no funding from the district other than teacher salary, yet music programs are very expensive to run.  We rely on donations to cover the costs of coaching, sheet music, instruments, equipment, transportation, festival registration fees, and other expenses. Your support is greatly appreciated.


 All donations are tax deductible.
