Donate to Sound and Music

As a registered charity we rely on the generosity and support of new music enthusiasts such as you to continue our vital work.

We would be immensely grateful if you could donate to Sound and Music’s work. Any donation, however small, helps us nurture the composers of today and tomorrow, guaranteeing new music continues to thrive and reach new audiences.

As a charity, we simply cannot do this without you. 

A donation of:

  • £50 provides a New Voices composer with accredited coaching or mentoring, which will transform their creative practice
  • £100 could support the research required to complete profiles for ‘forgotten’ or less well known composers featured within the British Music Collection archives
  • £250 could ensure a composer is able to produce digital content e.g. a recording or podcast, from their residency ensuring their music is able to reach many more ears
  • £450 creates a full bursary for one young composer to attend the intensive, week-long Summer School residential
  • £1,000 provides a full bursary for one composer participating in the New Voices composer development programme

Please choose one of the suggested amounts or enter a different amount in the box below. You can also email our development team at to discuss other ways to donate, support or get involved.

Sound and Music receives every penny that you donate and you can even sign up for Gift Aid so that we can claim an extra 25p back for every £1 donated, at no extra cost to you. Thank you!
