Friends of the RSCM
If you make a gift (UK) of more than £30 annually you will become a Friend of the RSCM. Through the gifts of our Friends and other individual donors, we are able to introduce more and more people to the joy, meaning and beauty that music brings to worship. We thank our Friends and major donors with a year’s subscription to Church Music Quarterly and The Network which lists RSCM events (UK and Ireland only). You may also choose to subscribe to the free email newsletter, and may be invited to RSCM Friends events throughout the year. See the current Annual Report (above) for a list of Friends of the RSCM.
Friends may give to the RSCM at several levels, or an amount of their own choosing:
|The RSCM Annual Fund Levels||Gift|
|Friend||£30.00 or more|
|Great Friend||£100.00 or more|
|Best Friend||£500.00 or more|
|Sir Sydney Nicholson Founder’s Circle||£1,000.00 or more|

If you are actively involved in church music, you might like to consider becoming an individual member of the RSCM, or your church or choir could become an affiliated member, receiving more resources and discounts to benefit your work. Find out more about membership in the UK here
If you are a UK taxpayer, we can claim an additional 25% on donations if you complete a Gift Aid Declaration. This does not cost you any more but it means that each £30.00 donated is currently worth £37.50 to the RSCM. You can download a Gift Aid form below, or tick the relevant Gift Aid box on the application form. Please notify the RSCM if you: want to cancel the Gift Aid Declaration at any time; change your name or home address; no longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains. If you pay Income Tax at the higher or additional rate and want to receive the additional tax relief due to you, you must include all your Gift Aid donations on your Self Assessment tax return or ask HM Revenue and Customs to adjust your tax code.
To sustain our work, we also need the support of legacies from generous individuals who understand the vital need for music in worship. Legacy gifts ensure that future generations of church musicians will continue to sing, play and compose fine music, and that clergy, musicians and laity alike fully understand the place of music in religious services.
Thank you for your support.
