The YMC Bursary Fund was officially launched at our summer concert on 13th July 2019 at the Hampstead Garden Suburb Free Church.
We are delighted to announce that the internationally renowned violinist Gyorgy Pauk has become our Patron.

For the last 52 years the guiding objective and purpose of the Youth Music Centre has been to provide a wonderful musical education to large numbers of children from many different backgrounds. We have been particularly proud to be able to carry on that tradition by offering assisted places to students who would otherwise have been unable to benefit from YMC’s activities, and we are delighted that the number of such assisted places has grown in recent years
As part of our fundraising activities we are setting up a Sponsors, Supporters and Friends Scheme. This will offer a number of different ways in which you can support us. As a Sponsor, we would invite you to pledge a sum of between £250-£500 a year for a period of 3 years. As a Supporter, we would invite you a pledge a sum of between £100-£250 for the same term and likewise, as a Friend a sum of between £75-£100. Of course, we would also welcome one-off donations, or pledges for lesser amounts or for shorter periods, to support the scheme. YMC can benefit additionally from all such pledges and donations through Gift Aid. In all cases we would like, if you are agreeable, to include your name in all our future programmes and on our website.
Your generosity will be greatly appreciated and will enable YMC to continue to do in the future what it has done so successfully over so many years.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, and for your generosity.
