We raise funds in various ways, from financial and instrument donations through to holding fundraising events.

Online donations

You are now able to donate to the RSM online through the charity donation website JustGiving, which allows donors to use use most dedit/crebit cards or Paypal. It can reclaim gift aid tax on donations if you are a UK taxpayer. This means contributions will be worth 20% more than the donation amount. It also has far smaller costs than many other fundraising websites, which means more of your money goes to musicians in need.

Appeal for fine instruments

Should any members know of an instrument which could be donated to the Society, for loan to a talented young musician, we would be very pleased to hear from you.

Fundraising events 

We are delighted that each year, we receive many donations from generous supporters who have raised money for the Society through sponsored events such as Vonni Parson’s Big Swim and Patrick Orr’s Bupa 10K. If you are interested in organising an event to raise funds for the Society, please do get in touch.

Make music your legacy

By bestowing a gift to The Royal Society of Musicians in your will, you are helping musicians across the UK to continue doing what they love, making music. Your support will continue the tradition began in 1738 of helping musicians in their time of need, which has allowed the musical life of Great Britain to flourish for centuries, and with your help, into the future.

A gift in your will is a personal decision that you will want to discuss with friends and family. If you wish to leave a gift to The Royal Society of Musicians, read on for some helpful information about how to do so.
