Charity number


The Herefordshire Music Fund is a Registered Charity (No. 1186174). What drives us is the belief that every child and young person should be able to access musical opportunities and develop their talents whatever their financial or social background.

What we do?

For children and young people from low-income families, we provide financial assistance to fund instrumental and vocal tuition. We support complete beginners through to the most experienced and across a range of styles including classical, folk, pop, rock and jazz.


We nurture the talent of young musicians across all genres. So, we help those who struggle financially with the cost of taking part in activities including workshops, courses, residentials, events and masterclasses / sessions with renowned musicians. 

Could you give regularly?

Our ambition is to support 40 young people each and every year. 200 people giving £5 per month will enable us to achieve this. Please consider becoming a Friend or Champion of Herefordshire Music Fund. HMF Friends are generous people who give regularly from £5 a month to the Fund. Champions give regularly from £25 a month (or £300 annual donation). The monthly amount you choose to give is completely up to you. Every donation goes towards helping young musicians develop their talent and overcome the financial and social barriers they face.

Friends and Champions have the option of being acknowledged on the Herefordshire Music Fund website and in Encore Youth Music concert programmes. HMF Champions will also receive free tickets to Encore Youth Music concerts. We will not publish the names of Friends and Champions without your consent.
