THE BIG GIVE 2020CHAMPIONS FOR CHILDREN
We are thrilled that London Youth Choirs has been chosen by The Big Give and The Childhood Trust to participate in their upcoming Champions for Children online appeal from 23 to 30 of June.
This is a massive vote of confidence in the role LYC is playing in continuing to educate and provide emotional support to our young members across the whole of London.
Conscious that many LYC families are finding lockdown financially challenging, we have not charged any membership fees this summer term. Some families have kindly donated their fees and we are aiming to bring in additional donations through The Big Give to fund the ongoing delivery of LYC Live, our weekly online training programme.
OUR APPEAL TARGET is £45,000
which means that we will need to raise £22,500 in online donations between 23-30 June. Every gift will be matched pound-for-pound by a combination of The Childhood Trust and a generous new donor.
Donations from just £5 can be matched and we hope that this appeal will enable us to attract support at all levels from new, as well as existing, supporters.
WE NEED YOUR HELP
London Youth Choirs is about so much more than learning to sing. LYC teaching raises confidence and aspiration levels in young people, many of whom come from challenging circumstances and have little support at home.
We need your help to keep our young people singing. Over the past 7 years, membership has grown to 311 and we know that more young people are wanting to join.
What’s special about The Big Give is that your generous gift will be doubled and if you can Gift Aid your donation, LYC receives even more.
YOUR £20 DONATION
+ £20 Big Give match + £5 Gift Aid = £45 to LYC
YOUR £100 DONATION
+ £100 Big Give match + £25 Gift Aid = £225 to LYC
YOUR £500 DONATION
+ £500 Big Give match + £125 Gift Aid = £1,125 to LYC
Every pound you give contributes to our mission of offering all young Londoners, irrespective of background or circumstances, an enriching musical experience. Donations from this appeal will help to ensure our teaching and wellbeing support through LYC Live can be sustained until we can come together again for rehearsals.
We hope you will want to help us reach our goal. Every gift, whatever the size, will make a difference.
