To make a donation please visit our donate page
Or you can Support us in other ways:
Do you have a particular skill or talent that we could make use of at OKMT? We are always looking for volunteers who are willing to give up their time to help our cause.
People often think the only support a charity needs is large monetary donations… don’t get us wrong, we are hugely grateful for every donation we receive, but there are other ways you can help us here at OKMT. Read on to find out how you could get involved this year.
Get involved with our events…
We run a number of community events throughout the year and we are always on the lookout for volunteers to help at events and with other community fundraising opportunities. So if you have some spare time and love talking to people then why not come and join our small friendly team and help make a difference?
Be our ‘Star Baker’…
Who doesn’t love a homemade cake or biscuit? If you are a keen baker then why not organise a cake sale at your work or child’s school in aid of OKMT? Not only will you be doing something great for OKMT but everyone will love you for feeding them cake! If you haven’t got time to organise your own cake sale then why not sell your delicious cakes and biscuits at one of our fundraising events instead?
You can organise your own event and raise funds for us.
In the past our supporters have held:
- Musical production performances
- Musical evening in their homes
- Participated in sporting events such as fun runs and swimathons
- Held coffee mornings
- Raised funds through a car boot sale
- A sponsored sky dive
Sport or activities more your thing…
Prefer sports to baking? Then why not take on a physical challenge in aid of OKMT? There’s so much choice out there… marathons, bikeathons, sky-diving, tough mudders… whatever challenge takes your fancy, we’ll support you every step of the way. You can set up fundraising pages for your friends and families to make donations to support you on Virgin Money Giving. And click on Start Fundraising.
Or Just Giving . And click on Fundraise for us.
Spread the Word
If none of the above takes your fancy, then the simplest way for you to support OKMT is to spread the word about the work we are doing. Whether it’s sharing our events and campaigns on social media or promoting our services to people who may be interested in music therapy – we are always grateful to people who share the work we do to help us reach an even bigger audience.
Share your talents…
Do you have a particular skill or talent that we could make use of at OKMT? Whether it’s movie making, event planning or even a skill like face painting that we can use at our events, then do get in touch to share your skills.
What could you do to help us? And have fun in the process! We will assist in any way we can.
Get your company or school involved…
Do you work for a company that is committed to supporting local charities? If so then do get in touch! We’d love to be your ‘Charity of the Year’! It’s a great way of boosting staff morale at the same time as doing your bit for charity!
Or maybe you have a child at a local school, who may be willing to fundraise for a local charity like OKMT? We can supply you with leaflets and short presentations and films or come into a company or school to tell them about OKMT.
Another great way to support OKMT is to use easyfundraising.org.uk when you shop online. You don’t pay anything extra – the donation is made by the retailer and comes directly to OKMT.
Supporting The Otakar Kraus Music Trust doesn’t have to cost you anything! 4,000 shops and sites will donate for FREE when you use Easy Fundraising to shop with them at no extra cost to you.
And if you refer a friend OKMT gets an extra £5 donation. Get started here:
