Support Us

The income that the Philharmonia Orchestra receives through both 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 must raise £2 million every year to keep bringing the finest music to concertgoers in London, across the United Kingdom, and around the world. Audience engagement is at the heart of what we do, and thanks to our award-winning digital work we are now able to reach new audiences online, as well as in the concert hall.

There are many different ways in which you can 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 by joining our Conductors’ Circle. In return for your 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 are also crucial. 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 charitable trusts also allows us to continue our essential work in reaching the widest possible audiences. Trusts and Foundations currently help to fund many of the Orchestra's acclaimed digital installations and education and outreach projects. 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.
