In addition to funding from memberships, grants, and sponsorships, the Society accepts gifts of cash and in-kind donation to sustain its operations and assure its long-term sustainability. These gifts help to underwrite the the concert season and to promote the appreciation of Early Music in the community.
Donations, for which tax receipts are issued, may be made to either the operating fund or the Early Music Society of the Islands Endowment Fund.
Please contact Rondallyn Perras, Fundraising Director, for information on allocating your donation or bequest to the Society.
For guidance relating to gifts in support of a specific concert, James Young, the Artistic Director, would be pleased to discuss the opportunities available.

The Endowment Fund is managed on our behalf by the Victoria Foundation. Each year a portion of the investment income is given as an operating grant to EMSI and the balance reinvested. Recently, these grants have been eligible to receive up to 100% in matching funds from government arts initiatives. The monies assist us in our season, allowing us to present artists who would otherwise be unaffordable.
Along with their love and respect of the genre, early music supporters often share a keen sense of history and legacy.
You have enjoyed our concerts over the years and your planned gift is a living reminder of your wish to carry that support of the Society into the future.
Regardless of current assets or income, you can set up a Legacy plan.
