The Liverpool Music Foundation was established in 2013 and aims to provide access to music for youths in deprived areas of the city. The Liverpool Music Foundation is the sister charity if the Liverpool Music Awards. All funds raised through tonight’s raffle will go to a pot of funding which can will be used to help deprived youths in our city gain access to music.
Why doesn’t The Liverpool Music Foundation have a registered charity number?
Charities in the UK can only register with the Charities Commission to receive a registered charity number if they have raised more than £5000 in their first year. The Liverpool Music Foundation is in its first year of operation and therefore, like hundreds of other charitable organisations in the UK, we are currently run as a ‘small charity’- governed by a constitution and trustees just the same as any normal charity.
How can you help?
The Liverpool Music Foundation is a small charity run by a group of volunteers. Therefore we have minimal administration costs and your help can make a direct difference to deprived youths in our city. The main areas we currently require help in are:
- Fundraisers: We are looking for people who want to do something different this year- whether it be challenging yourself with a marathon or abseil, or getting your friends together for a bake sale or car wash!
- Youth sponsors: Alternatively, make the commitment of sponsoring the costs of music lessons for a youth for £500 a year.
- Ambassadors: If fundraising isn’t your thing, we are also looking for music professionals who would like to go into schools and local groups to impart their knowledge, and give advice about the music industry.
Everyone can make something amazing happen. As a small charity we are in need of a whole range of skills and what we need most are proactive people with ideas. Get in touch with to see how you can help us change the lives of youths in our city.
