Give the gift of music
As a Dunedin Consort listener, we already know that you are passionate about music. We know how much you value the thrill of a live performance. But have you considered taking that passion forwards to help provide enriching and inspiring experiences to future listeners for generations to come?
Including a legacy in your Will can be a meaningful way to ensure that your passion for music lives on, and that the future is filled with music long beyond your own lifetime.
Dunedin Consort is a charity that depends upon the support of its friends and donors to survive – and every pledged amount helps. You do not have to be wealthy to leave a lasting legacy. Every gift, large or small, can help to ensure that our work can continue for years to come.
Our commitment to excellent and powerful music-making is varied and far-reaching, so we know that anyone’s connection to the Consort is unique. Whether your interest lies in supporting our concerts and recordings, or in facilitating our learning and engagement work within the community, we hope to honour your memory with a pledge that is personal and special to you.
A legacy is also a wonderful way to honour the memory of a loved one, perhaps a family member who has enjoyed Dunedin Consort’s performances over the years. Included below is a heart-warming story from one of our supporters who chose to give a gift from his mother’s estate.
HOW TO PLEDGE
Legacy donations offer a variety of options in terms of support. No matter what type of pledge you are considering, Dunedin Consort will be happy to discuss the options.
When the time comes for you and your loved ones to discuss preparing a will, please consider including legacy donations in a conversation with your solicitor, who will be able to explain the options available to you.

“Dunedin Consort is a world-class national treasure… a consistent source of great delight, fun and comfort. And I want to help that to continue, even when I’m not there to support them in person”

In her old age, she expressed a need to be reconnected to the music which she so loved. Thus, I used to take her often to performances at The Queen’s Hall, of chamber music, and choral music. This was her favourite medium, and we went every year to Dunedin Consort’s performances of Messiah and the Matthew Passion.
