The York Music Hub is a small independent charity that works with schools and other providers to create opportunities for young people to make and enjoy music. It showcases the best bands and orchestras in the city at public events, and provides grants and bursaries for individuals and ensembles who need financial support.

Your support could make all the difference for a young person who is passionate about music and wants to learn to sing, or play an instrument and become good enough to join a choir or play in a band.

Any support you are able to provide will go directly to those most in need, and the organisations that support and inspire them.


How can you help?


Every penny that you donate goes directly into providing more opportunities for young people in York. Below are a few examples of how the hub uses your donations and how you can help sustain the cities fantastic music provision well into the future:


Become a friend!

Become a Bronze friend for £24 or £2 per month

As a friend of York Music Hub you will be supporting the wide range of opportunities we provide. This includes a contribution towards the cost of lessons for a child who cannot otherwise afford to learn an instrument, help with the hire of an instrument, or support for the running of one of the many ensembles within York.

Become a Silver friend for £96 or £8 per month

If you make a more substantial donation we will be able to commission more projects and events, and provide more opportunities for our young people. York Music Hub's partner project fund supports schools, musical organisations and ensembles as they deliver a hugely varied number of activities and events for young people. Your donation will contribute directly to increasing the support the hub is able to offer our partners. Becoming a silver friend entitles you to a free ticket to any YMH organised event

Become a Gold friend for £180 or £15 per month

This highly generous option will contribute towards the cost of a child’s music lessons for a year. For many young people, learning an instrument is a fundamental part of becoming a musician. Your support will allow York Music Hub to support more people through our bursary schemes. Becoming a gold friend entitles you to free tickets to all YMH organised events.
