What if your donation could help change the future of the performing arts in Vancouver?

What if that donation could also provide opportunities for young musicians to develop professional careers? Inspire artists and audiences to come together as a community of listeners? Allow underserved populations to experience the power of live music?

Since taking flight in 2006, Music on Main has worked to create a community of listeners who support fresh programming in some of Vancouver’s most vibrant neighbourhoods. Private philanthropy remains at the core of Music on Main’s support, and includes opportunities to demonstrate your support with an annual gift of any amount, a re-occurring monthly contribution, or membership in Music on Main’s Director’s Circle. We also occasionally host intimate and engaging fundraising events in a variety of locales.

All donations, large and small, are greatly appreciated, and support Music on Main’s artistic activities.

Your generosity helps keep tickets affordable, and also contributes to Music on Main’s programs for emerging artists, opportunities to commission and present new work, and supporting a diverse range of artists and audience members.

Planned Giving

Music on Main intends for its future to be as bright as its past. We now accept planned and estate gifts. Giving options include bequests, publicly traded securities, and naming Music on Main as a charitable beneficiary in your will or endowment. Many of these options offer significant tax advantages to you and your family.

We would be pleased to discuss these giving options in greater detail. Although regulations in British Columbia make it easy to add to your existing will, we suggest you work with your lawyer, financial planner, or accountant as you make your decision. This will help to ensure that your gift is in accord with your financial and charitable goals, and that it clearly expresses your wishes.

If you have included Music on Main in your will, please let us know so that we can recognize your generosity. We accept gifts of any size, and are grateful to be a part of your plans. A legacy gift of any size to Music on Main represents an investment in Vancouver’s musical future.
