Double your money with the Big Give

Tuesday 24 November 2015


The RCM is once again proud to be participating in the Big Give Christmas Challenge on Friday 4 and Saturday 5 December 2015.

This year, we’re aiming to raise £180,000 through the challenge to support even more talented young musicians through the RCM Scholarships Fund, which aims to give all talented students, irrespective of background, the opportunity to complete their studies without financial worries.

The Big Give Christmas Challenge is a matched funding opportunity set up in conjunction with The Reed Foundation, whereby every online donation we receive - from £5 to £5000 during the challenge phase - could be doubled! 

Last year we raised £167,764, beating our £160,000 target, but this year we would like to raise even more to support our talented students and have increased our target to £180,000. Please help us to make the most of this fantastic opportunity by making a donation.

How to Donate

Visit the RCM’s page on the Big Give website and click ‘Donate Now’ from 12 midday on Friday 4 and Saturday 5 December to increase the chances of having your donation doubled. 

With limited matched funds released at 12pm each day you have to be quick! The earlier you can donate on each day, the more chance you have of doubling your money. All donations between £5 and £5,000 could be matched.

Please note: You will be informed on the website as to whether your donation has been matched or not before entering your payment details.

If available, matching funds will be reserved for 10 minutes whilst you donate. If the donation is not being matched, you can wait a few minutes and try again. Non-matched donations still contribute towards our target and are very much appreciated! 

If you have any questions please call Suzie Capps on 020 7591 4861 or email

There is no better opportunity to support our gifted young musicians. On behalf of our students, thank you for your support.
