Major Giving

A major gift to Help Musicians is an investment in the future of UK music

Help Musicians offers support which makes a real difference to the people behind the music; in times of crisis and in times of opportunity. A major gift is transformational for our work, allowing us to continue to offer a lifetime of support to musicians when it’s needed most.

The 1921 Club

The 1921 Club was established to mark our centenary and is a way to join other music lovers who want to celebrate all genres of music and make a positive and sustained impact to the lives of musicians.

Music plays such an important role in our all lives and by joining the 1921 Club you will help us continue to support musicians in real urgent need, along with ensuring we develop the talent of the future. Members enjoy a range of unique musical opportunities with like-minded people and are the charity’s closest friends.

For a minimum annual donation of £2,500 or more*, club members receive invitations to exclusive Help Musicians events, an annual 1921 Club reception and other engagement opportunities. Members will be the first to hear news on the charity’s evolution and the impact it delivers through the voices of beneficiaries and our CEO.

At Help Musicians we love music, so we help musicians. Join us! For further information on the 1921 Club please contact [email protected] or call 020 7239 9142.

Help Musicians Pledge
100% of your donation goes directly to our frontline work to help musicians.

Other ways to give
As a registered charity, and an independent organisation that receives no revenue funding from government, the generosity of major donors is hugely important for Help Musicians. The charity is now 100 years old and generosity from past donors has meant the charity can continue with its mission to create a world where musicians thrive.

We’re experienced in supporting individual philanthropists, corporations and charitable trusts and foundations. We’ll work with you to ensure your donation has a unique impact.

You can give a one-off gift, or pledges that help us plan the future of our work whether you are in the UK or overseas.

If you would like to partner with Help Musicians, we would love to hear from you. Email [email protected] or phone 020 7239 9142.
