When someone we love dies, our fondest memories of them are often musical: their favourite songs, or fun times we’ve shared at gigs and festivals. Music can help us get through the toughest of times.
By creating a Youth Music memorial fund in honour of a loved one, you can help break down barriers and support young people to get started in music. There are several options listed below.
Celebrate a life and change lives.
A platform where you can fundraise or donate to Youth Music. Setting up a page only takes a few minutes - or if you’d prefer, you can donate directly without a dedicated fundraising page.
Through our website
A simple process which allows you to donate using either a credit/debit card or PayPal. You can mention that you are donating in memory of someone in the ‘Why are you donating to Youth Music?’ dropdown section.

When Gary passed away suddenly, his close friend Andy Cooper chose to honour his memory by raising money for Youth Music. Along with Gary’s family and friends, Andy helped to organise a memorial gig.
