Make a donation

For over 100 years, support like yours has enabled Help Musicians to make a meaningful difference to the lives of musicians across the UK. 

A musician’s life can be precarious with ups and downs throughout. Opportunities are hard-won, whilst challenges come along all too easily, with unsteady income and physical and mental health concerns common. In addition, training can take many years and, along with investing in instruments and other equipment, acts as a financial barrier to creative progression. Help Musicians offers a broad range of help for musicians in times of crisis and opportunity - ensuring they can achieve their creative potential.  

Sadly, due to the pandemic your support is needed more than ever. Since March 2020, Help Musicians has provided financial hardship support to over 19,000 musicians. In 2022, this need will continue at scale while the music sector rebuilds. 

Whether you set up a regular donation or give a one-off donation below, giving makes such a difference. Love Music? Help Musicians

If you are a UK taxpayer, the value of your gift can be increased by 25% under the Gift Aid scheme at no extra cost to you.

I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year it is my responsibility to pay any difference.

Please notify the charity if you:

  • want to cancel this declaration

  • no longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains

If you pay Income Tax at the higher or additional rate and want to receive the additional tax relief due to you, you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self-Assessment tax return or ask HM Revenue and Customs to adjust your tax code.
