Donate to SMG
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 no longer receive regular funding as had been the case in the past, so we’re now self-sustaining 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. Donations can be made online (using the button to the right) or by cheque or cash at our office.
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.
Scots Music Group is a charity registered in Scotland number SC032702.
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 an amount of tax in a year equal or greater than the amount of tax that SMG can reclaim on your donation (25p for every £1 donated). If you are not a UK taxpayer, for example if you are retired or a student, Gift Aid does not apply to you.
You can choose to Gift Aid any donations you make through our booking process online, for example if you decide to round up your class fees. In your website Dashboard, you can opt for Scots Music Group to Gift Aid all your future donations by checking the box on the profile page. We’ll take care of the rest.
