Fund the Future

You can make new music possible with a £5 monthly donation

Sound and Music is the national charity for new music. We’re here to help the people who create, perform, program and enjoy new music across the country. 

But we can’t do it without your support. 

As a charity, we rely on a number of sources to fund the vital work that we do. But as budgets tighten and demand for support increases in the wake of the pandemic, it’s becoming more important than ever to ensure we can guarantee the long-term future of our work. 

Set up a donation today to play your part in the future of new music. Your contribution will provide life-changing composition workshops for young composers, give established artists the support they need to flourish, and ensure we can campaign for a more inclusive and equitable new music scene.

Reclaim Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Sound and Music to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Sound and Music we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Sound and Music to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. 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 I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Sound and Music will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Sound and Music receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
