Making a donation

There are several ways that you can make a donation to support the charitable work we do at Guitar Circus. Every penny you give us goes towards classical guitar education; providing bursaries for gifted guitarists, delivering high quality coaching, skills workshops and performing concerts.

We can accept donations in various ways; through our mydonate page that accepts one off donations (with Gift Aid), through our easyfundraising page that enables you to donate as you shop online, or by becoming a Friend of Guitar Circus. If you would like to explore our corporate partnerships please go to our sponsorship page.
