The PMF must raise £150,000 every year to fund our important work. We rely on the generosity of charitable trusts, businesses and members of the community – that means you!
The PMF completely relies on donors and volunteers, without which we could not carry out our valuable work.
We are a grassroots charity started by people living in Pimlico. Our first project was a small concert at St Gabriel’s Church in Pimlico, featuring an adult choir and students from two local schools. We are now embedded in five local schools, have successfully founded two community choirs, host three successful concerts every year, and launched our advanced music project in September 2018: The Foundation Scholars Programme.
This means that our turnover has increased from £30,000 in 2015 to a projected £150,000 in the 2019/2020 academic year.
We currently receive no government funding.

We also invite people in our community to donate proceeds from their own events. In the past we have received donations raised from film showings, residents association collections and local BBQs!
If you have an event coming up, host a book group, or are a member of a resident’s association, then why not consider PMF as the chosen charity for a collection at your next event? We encourage people in Pimlico to use PMF as a way to get closer to their neighbours.
