Double Your Money with The Big Give

Monday 25 November 2013


The RCM is committed to a long-term increase in our scholarship funding. This is so that more talented young people can take up places at the RCM without shouldering the full burden of rising tuition fees. As a major step towards this goal we are once again participating in the Big Give Christmas Challenge.

The Big Give Christmas Challenge is a matched funding opportunity set up in conjunction with The Reed Foundation. For every £1 donated online, the RCM will receive £2. We are seeking to raise £160,000 to benefit our students, so please do consider making a donation which will help us reach this target.

In 2012 we were thrilled to raise our target of £140,000, which went to incredibly talented RCM students. Here you can watch a short video, showing how two current Big Give Scholars have benefited from the generosity of our donors:

Our 2013 challenge kicked off on Thursday 5 December. It was a great success, and we have already raised £63,450 towards our target of £160,000.


From 10am on Friday 6 December and Saturday 7 December, visit The Big Give website to have any donation you make to the RCM (from £1 to £5,000) doubled.

All donations are meaningful to us; if you have ever considered making a donation which will aid future RCM students there is no better time to do so. Whether you make a major gift or give us the price of your Monday morning coffee, every penny will make a difference to the lives of deserving RCM students.

On behalf of our students, thank you for your support.
