Code of Fundraising Practice

Volunteer fundraising is so important to Youth Music, and it’s a great way to raise awareness of and donations for our work. But there are rules we need to share with you to ensure we're doing the right thing when it comes to fundraising.

Roses for Youth Music

Saron Tewolde, a Year 11 student at EIFA International School in London, decided to sell roses for Valentine’s Day, with 100% of the profits going to Youth Music. EIFA is a bilingual school and teaches all core subjects in English and French. In France, it is tradition to buy roses for your loved ones for Valentine’s Day, or La Saint-Valentin. Students were encouraged to buy roses for their friends, family, teachers, or anyone who was special to them. The campaign was a great success, with almost 300 roses being sold and £455.50 raised for Youth Music. Thank you so much, Saron!
