Cambridge Summer Music Ltd is a charity and receives no regular public funding. This year we must raise more than £60,000 solely through the generosity of our ever-expanding group of supporters. You can support CSM by donating now, or by joining the Friends of CSM.



The Friends of Cambridge Summer Music are the closest supporters of the charity’s work in the Cambridge community. Each year the Friends give more than £25,000 to support our core operating costs, forming the backbone of our financial stability. We are delighted to acknowledge our Friends in a variety of ways, enabling members to build a personal association with the organisation.

There are five levels of membership to the Friends of CSM starting at just £5 per month (£60pa). We hope you’ll consider joining the Friends and helping to secure the future of Cambridge’s oldest and largest classical music promoter.

A donation in excess of these charges is requested, but not required, to support CSM’s work, which qualifies for Gift Aid. If you wish to make a contribution but you do not wish to receive benefits or attend events, you can make a donation-only gift to CSM at each Friends level.
