Ways to support NYJO

  • Chair Sponsors, who each support a particular ‘chair’ or instrument in the orchestra from £1,000 a year
  • Chairman’s Circle, who donate £5,000 or more annually, for a minimum of three years
  • Friends of NYJO who make regular donations and support our performances throughout the year
  • Legacy Giving provides the opportunity to leave a valuable gift in your Will
  • We receive vital funding from Trusts, Foundations and Sponsors

For Chairman’s Circle members, donations are matched pound for pound by Arts Council England’s Catalyst Evolve scheme; meaning a gift of £5,000 becomes worth £11,250 to NYJO. Higher-rate taxpayers can also claim tax relief on their donations to the scheme.


Support NYJO and the future of jazz

‘From an educational point of view, I think NYJO is one of our most valuable institutions in this country.’

The Hon. Richard C Lyttelton, Former President of EMI Classics and Jazz

Since its inception in 1965, NYJO has inspired thousands of passionate, talented and young musicians.

As a registered charity, we rely on generous support from individuals, trusts and foundations. Without this support, the critically-acclaimed performances and award-wining education work we deliver across the country would not be possible.
