We need your support

The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) is a registered charity (no.244533) and as such we are truly grateful to all our generous supporters. Ticket sales and Arts Council England funding cover only part of the cost associated with producing the RPO’s outstanding performance and community output; your support will help the Orchestra maintain its status as one of the world’s great cultural institutions and achieve its ultimate goal of bringing world-class orchestral music to the widest possible audience, both now and in the future.

How will your donation help?

From individual donations to corporate sponsorship, every pound makes a difference. Your generous donation will support the RPO's ongoing endeavours in making orchestral music accessible to everyone. Funds raised will help underpin and sustain the RPO’s future artistic and outreach ambitions and play a crucial role in securing the future years of excellence we have to offer.


How to donate

You can make a donation securely online. We have also recently introduced a donate by text option (see below). You can also donate by post.

To donate £5, text INSPIRED to 70970

To donate £30, text INSPIRED to 70191

HOW DOES IT WORK? - For donation texts, you will be charged the amount of the donation plus the standard text message rate specified by your network provider.

The standard network charge for text messages is at your network provider's rates. If the keyword or shortcode you text is incorrect, you may still be charged a message at your standard network rate. However, you won't be charged by us for the donation as you won't be donating to the RPO.

There is no limit on the number of times you may make a donation via text but there is a daily limit of £30 on text donations. You will not be able to donate more by text from the same number on the same day, but you may still incur your standard network message charge if you try. 

If you experience any problems donating from your mobile device please check with your mobile service provider to see if your contract allows for text donations.
