Musicians need you this Giving Tuesday!

If the consumer frenzy of Black Friday gives you the ick, supporting a cause you care about on Giving Tuesday is an easy way to reset the balance! 

This year Giving Tuesday is on 29 November and we need to raise £4,000 by the end of the day.  

The money will go towards our grassroots Career Development Programme – which plays a part in addressing the inequalities in the music industry, by empowering artists from minoritised groups to get ahead and develop sustainable careers.

DOUBLE THE DIFFERENCE FOR YOUNG MUSICIANS

We need to raise £20,000 through our Champions for Children fundraising campaign. How does it work? Every pound you give from 12 noon on Tuesday 14 June until 12 noon on Tuesday 21 June will be doubled!  Your donation will have twice the impact, at no extra cost.
