Beyond our treasured Members, we are immensely grateful to those individuals able to make a greater donation. All such donors are called RPS Fellows and enjoy a unique relationship with the charity and the musicians we champion. Some entrust us with funds to put to the best possible use at the time. Others come with an idea for us to develop and fulfil together. Also dear to us as RPS Fellows are those who choose in their Will to support classical music, recognising the RPS as an enduring, trusted entity, devoted to fulfilling their intentions with care and lasting resonance.
We all know someone who loves classical music – or someone we’re sure would love it, given the chance. If you’re looking for fresh and rewarding gift ideas, consider buying RPS Membership as a gift that lasts throughout the year for a friend or loved one. They can enjoy all the benefits of Membership and, best of all, you can both take pride in the knowledge that your gift is supporting one of music’s foremost charities. With it, we can continue our vital work giving musicians the support, opportunities, guidance and recognition they deserve.
There’s strength, solidarity and opportunity to be found in working together. Whether you’re an amateur or professional ensemble, an organisation devoted to music, or work in a different sector entirely, you can be an RPS Corporate Member and draw on our strong links and insights into every corner of the musical ecology. Given our unique position, we can expand your network, ignite new partnerships, and help fulfil your own strategic priorities. We can further your profile to our extensive social media following and fast-growing RPS Membership of engaged music-lovers.
