An important aspect to Scots Music Group’s valuable work is raising funds so that we can continue to provide generous discounts to eligible concession-holders, accessible events, affordable products and actively support our community development projects.

We are a self-sustaining organisation and need to cover a significant proportion of our costs through our own fundraising, including donations.  We welcome donations from individuals, businesses and other organisations, whether on joining as a member, enrolment or at events, or indeed at any other time.  If you would like to make a donation to support a particular aspect of our activities, or include a bequest when drawing up a will, please get in touch to discuss how best to set this up.


Use Gift Aid to make your donation go further

Your donation could be worth 25% more – at no extra cost to you. If you are a UK taxpayer, Gift Aid lets Scots Music Group reclaim tax on donations you have made to us.  The UK government’s Gift Aid scheme means that, for every £10 you give, we can claim an extra £2.50 from the UK Treasury, making your gifts worth more to Scots Music Group.

You must ensure that you pay the same amount or more of UK Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax as all charities and CASC’s will claim on your gifts in a tax year and you will be responsible to pay any difference.  If you are not a UK taxpayer, for example if you are retired or a student, Gift Aid does not apply to you. Find out about Gift Aid on the website  (Claiming Gift Aid as a charity or CASC – GOV.UK)
