Support Us

The income that the Philharmonia Orchestra receives through sales at the Box Office and our public funding covers only 60% of our annual expenditure. This means that, even with consistently sold-out concert halls, our artistic ambitions can only be realised with donations from generous individuals, corporate support, and funding from Trusts and Foundations.

The Philharmonia Orchestra

Acknowledged as the UK's foremost musical pioneer, the Philharmonia Orchestra lives at the heart of British musical life. In this film, Simon Oliver (Double Bass & Chairman) introduces the Orchestra and its work today.

The Philharmonia Orchestra is a registered charity and needs to raise £2 million every year to keep bringing the finest music to concertgoers in London, across the United Kingdom, and further afield. Thanks to our award-winning digital work, our audiences now exist in both the concert hall and online.

There are many different ways in which you support the Philharmonia in its vital work. If you wish to make a personal contribution, you can do so by making an online donation, becoming a Friend or joining our Conductors’ Circle. In return for your instrumental generosity, you will be entitled to a number of benefits that grant you exclusive access to the Orchestra and its players.

The relationships that we hold with our corporate partners also make a huge contribution to the work of the Philharmonia. Your company may benefit from a relationship with the Orchestra as part of our Members' Club or as a Corporate Partner; options that will enable you to take full advantage of a range of bespoke corporate entertaining and marketing opportunities.

Support from grant-making trusts and foundations allows us to continue to provide essential work in reaching the widest possible audiences. Whether through digital installations or our many education and outreach programmes, the philanthropic support that we receive from charitable organisations is invaluable.

We hope that you enjoy finding out more about how you can become involved with the work of the Philharmonia Orchestra.
