Support Us

Private philanthropy fuels the heart of Music on Main’s work, and includes opportunities to demonstrate your generosity with an annual gift of any amount, a re-occurring monthly contribution, or a legacy gift, as well as individual and corporate sponsorship opportunities. Read on to learn more about how you can help make it possible for individuals from all walks of life to continue to ‘listen, together’.

“Music on Main concerts make me feel like I did in my early 20s, when music was vast, and new, exciting music was happening all the time. I thought it would always be like that. Now, it is – at least in Vancouver.”

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

What if that generosity could also provide opportunities for emerging musicians to develop professional careers? Inspire artists and audiences to come together as a supportive community of listeners? Allow people from all walks of life to share in the power of live music?

All donations, large and small, are greatly appreciated, and make everything at Music on Main possible.

Your generosity, particularly during these challenging times, inspires us! And, it ensures that Music on Main can continue to create exceptional digital and in-person musical experiences, elevate and support artists, and continue to respond nimbly – and with care – to the needs of audiences.

Thank you for helping to keep the music playing, and for creating opportunities for all of us to ‘listen, together’.


Thank You!

Thank you to everyone who made a gift of any amount to Music on Main during January’s co-presentation of Graveyards and Gardens! From special gifts made at the point of ticket purchase, to individual donations that were gratefully received by Music on Main pre and post-show, every dollar made an impact, and every donor made a difference.

Music on Main still needs your help so that we can continue engage audiences, support artists, create digital events of exceptional quality, and ‘listen, together’ during these uncertain times. Please consider making a gift of any amount today.

The Y.P. Heung Foundation

The Y.P. Heung Foundation‘s four pillars are “hard work”, “honesty”, “honour”, and – most importantly – “humility”. The Foundation was established by an immigrant family to return the generosity and acceptance it received from its adopted country of choice upon arrival in Canada in the 1960s. Each year, the Foundation supports charitable activities throughout Metro Vancouver in the areas of arts and culture, health and wellness, and arts and culture. With its annual arts funding, the Foundation has helped to enable a series of arts engagement programs for youth in the region to thrive. Music on Main is grateful to the Foundation for its support of our 2021 Kessler Academy youth string orchestra mentorship program.
