Support Us

We need Your Support!

The quality and variety of Capella Edina’s work would not be possible without our family of sponsors and supporters. We are truly grateful to everybody who enables us to realise our mission, to perform concerts, to improve access to music through our educational programme, and supports our community work.

In return for your support we offer you a front-row and behind-the-scenes view of our work so that you can see the impact that your donations really make.

We hope you can feel proud from the meaningful contribution you make when you become a supporter of Capella Edina, whether as an individual or an organisation. With your help we can bring people together and share the joy of music.

Individual Support

Supporting Capella Edina is much more than just making a donation. You will be joining a group of inspirational and diverse individuals and investing in an outstanding orchestra.

You will benefit from a unique insight into the inner workings of Capella Edina with access to some of our rehearsals. In addition, there are opportunities to meet the players of the orchestra and invitations to many events throughout the season. For our patrons (i.e. donations over £10,000) there will also be opportunities to meet the Director of Music after concerts and to have lunch or dinner with him.

The support we receive from individuals plays a significant role in the financial wellbeing of the Capella Edina. Every single one of our donors makes a positive difference to our future and helps us to sustain our mission of artistic excellence, and enables us to deepen our engagement with communities across the Scotland and around the world to share the joy of music.

Leaving a Gift in Your Will

By leaving a gift in your will, you will be helping us to inspire, enthuse, and continue our work for years to come. Those who identify themselves to us as legacy pledgers will be invited to a special event during the year, gaining an insight into the Capella Edina and its artistic process.

 

Tax efficient giving

Gifts in wills to charities are tax efficient. If your estate is going to attract inheritance tax, any gift you leave to Capella Edina will be deducted from your estate before any tax is calculated. If you leave 10% or more of your estate to a charity, you will be taxed at a lower rate on any part of your estate that qualifies for inheritance tax.

 

How your generosity can help

There are several areas to which your gift to Capella Edina can be applied. The most helpful bequest is an unrestricted legacy. This will give our Board of Trustees the discretion to support that area of our work that in their judgement most merits philanthropic investment. Alternatively, you could consider supporting one of areas below.

Project funding

Every year, we curate a number of breathtaking concert experiences. Those include the presentation of classical and contemporary repertoire, newly commissioned works, and films in concert. By leaving a project legacy you will enable us to realise more daring and exciting repertoire.

Education

Education is at the heart of Capella Edina. Our players are passionate about sharing their love of music with communities across the country. From toddlers to primary and secondary schools, through to adults, and the elderly, people of all ages are involved in our programme. Your education legacy will ensure that we can continue to share our pioneering work with these communities.

 

Chair Patron legacy

By leaving a Chair Patron legacy, you will enable us to continue to attract world-class section principals. Chair Patronships start from £5,000 per year. We would suggest a donation of at least £20,000 to allow your Chair Patron legacy to continue for four years.

 

Leaving a gift to Capella Edina

Capella Edina is registered as a charity in England & Wales no 1206478 and all bequests will be held by the charity.

Below is some suggested wording to include in your will. If you already have a will, you can add a gift to Capella Edina with a codicil. This example wording can be used by you, or your solicitor to amend your existing will:

We realise that writing your will is a very personal and sometimes challenging process and we are grateful to you for considering us.
