Donations, for any amount, are always welcome.
TEMS does not receive any on-going grant funding, and we rely on local support to keep us going.
We would be very interested to hear from local businesses or individuals willing to sponsor a concert. We can tailor a concert to reflect your musical preference, and typically receive support varying from £100 to £300. Sponsors receive concert tickets, are mentioned on all promotional material (e.g. press releases, posters, programme, season launch newsletter etc) and can be featured at the concert.
To discuss how you can sponsor or donate and how your donation may be used, please contact TEMS’ chair, Jill Tomalin, on 01803 849414.
Friends and Patrons
As a small society without regular grant funding, we continue to face financial risks every year as we commit to spending more than £6,000 before securing subscriptions and ticket sales.
In 2008, TEMS raised c.£2000 as a one-off ‘insurance policy’ which is kept in a separate account to underwrite any losses. This was made possible by the generosity of members which remains much appreciated. We have not had to draw on this money to date.
