Become a Sponsor and Donate
Kirklees Music School is a registered charity (No.1013838)
Our work takes us to all areas of Kirklees and we are constantly searching for funds to support music making in a huge variety of ways. Whether it be one off projects; regular activities; purchase and repair of instruments; sponsering a concert; buying music for ensembles; supporting individual children in disadvantaged circumstances or a whole host of other ventures, you could help to support the work we do.
Here are four of the ways in which people have provided help:
1) A One-Off Donation
KMS can accept donations in person by cash or by cheque and postal order made payable to ‘Kirklees Music School'. Alternatively you can post your donation to Kirklees Music School, 9 Beast Market, Huddersfield HD1 1QF. (NB: Please see Gift Aid information below).
2) Regular Giving
Just a small, regular donation to Kirklees Music School can make a big difference to our ability to plan for and support the long-term development of music in Kirklees.
Make your donation go even further with Gift Aid
Gift Aid is a way to give money tax free to charity. If you pay income tax, KMS can claim back a further 28p for every £1 you donate from the Inland Revenue on any amount that you choose to give. Simply sign a Gift Aid Declaration and we will collect the income tax you have paid on your donation to invest further in our community services.
Imagine funding a gifted individual to further their development, providing a musical instrument or even buying or commissioning a piece of music for one of our groups.
You can, and you don't have to be wealthy to make this gesture a reality. By including Kirklees Music School (a charitable trust) - in your will, you can help to improve the musical opportunities open to the children in the area after your death. Your gift could bring lasting benefits to these children and help to further a cause you really cared about.
If you would like more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
4) Helping raise funds in your local community
We also work locally to target need through our music centres and schools in different areas of Kirklees. Please contact our office if you'd like further information.
Here are some ways you could help
You could make Kirklees Music School the beneficiary charity of a local fundraising event like a pub quiz, or a fete, or a concert, or a raffle or other event
You could help us set up a special one-off event - like a sponsored walk or a sponsored music marathon – or even a 'dinner dance'
Youmight know a company or business that would be willing to donate time or resources to us ‘in kind’. We also encourage sponsorship for programs, concerts and events
If you wish to make a named donation, in person or of significant value then please feel welcome to contact us direct. Remember that if you do it in person we can apply for Gift Aid (an extra 28p per pound if you are a UK tax payer)
You might ask why do we accept on-line donations? Well this is because we recognise that some people would prefer to remain anonymous or don't have enough hours in the day to pay us a visit
You may wish to sponser the uniforms of one of our ensembles
If you feel you can help us by making a donation, sponsoring a seat in one of our ensembles, or in any other way, please contact us at email@example.com
