Music plays a central role in all our lives.

It fortifies us, comforts us, rouses and inspires us. It brings joy, excitement and great sentiment. It defines countless moments and memories, so much so that we could almost take it for granted. The Royal Philharmonic Society exists to celebrate and strengthen the vital role music plays.

If you love music, we can turn your passion into an amazing gift that helps talented performers and composers fulfil their calling, often at critical and challenging moments in their careers.

One way to support the Royal Philharmonic Society is to become a Member. In turn, we can give you regular insights into the Society’s charitable endeavours so you can see where your support has truly made a difference.

You may prefer to make a singular donation. No matter how big or small, we would ensure this goes to valued use, fulfilling the Society’s charitable aims. Should you have means to make a significant donation, we would love to talk further about how we can celebrate your gesture and apply it towards an endeavour that has particular resonance for you. This could include sponsoring a particular initiative or even one of our prestigious RPS Music Awards.

There are two easy ways you can make a singular donation:

OPTION 1: Donate online
