Chetham’s is unique. Based in Manchester city centre, Chetham’s is home to a world-class music school educating the talent of the future, medieval buildings and public library and the award-winning Stoller Hall.

Chetham’s supporters preserve the wonderful history of Chetham’s – and the city – and secure a bright future for the UK’s music sector. Some of our supporters make recurring gifts via Direct Debit to support our wide range of activity here at Chetham’s.

Recurring gifts such as these are gratefully received and make a huge difference to all activity at Chetham’s. This provides a reliable income source to support our students, preserve and maintain our unique site and engage in a range of projects in the community. We’d love to get to know you, welcome you to events at Chetham’s and keep you informed with regular updates.

These are the areas you can support:

Chetham’s School of Music – donations will support student bursaries and wellbeing, music tuition and masterclasses, our Outreach programme, The Stoller Hall and other school activity.

Chetham’s Library – donations will support the upkeep of the library and its celebrated collections, enable visits from the general public, support academics and readers, undertake vital conservation work, document and digitise more of the collections to make them available to all, and other activities.

Preserving our buildings & capital developments – donations will support the maintenance of our new and old buildings and support capital projects across the whole site.

A gift of £20 per month could help us deliver 1:1 music lessons to our talented students, preserve an important set of medieval deeds, or welcome a world-class musician to deliver a public masterclass.

Alternatively, you can make a single donation to support our work by following the link on the right-hand side of this page.
