Approximately three-quarters of the income of Music in Peebles is generated through subscriptions and ticket sales, supplemented by fund-raising activities. Below are some of the other main sources of income.


CMS logo Music in Peebles is affiliated to Chamber Music Scotland (CMS), the national body promoting access for all to live chamber music across the whole Scottish community.

We gratefully acknowledge the financial subsidy we receive annually from CMS, through funding provided by Creative Scotland (formerly the Scottish Arts Council).

In furtherance of our aim to make music accessible to all, we have also obtained grants from the Peeblesshire Charitable Trust and the Peebles Common Good Fund to support performances in a local care home.


Music in Peebles is especially grateful to the many individuals who have made donations, in cash or kind, in support of its activities in the community.

In recent years, all cash donations have been added to the club's Piano Fund, which we plan to build up in readiness for the time when our current piano has to be replaced. However, we are now inviting donations to our general funds, to strengthen the resilience of Music in Peebles during these difficult times when income from ticket sales (our main source of income) is unlikely to return to normal levels for some time.

Donating to Music in Peebles is easy, via our page on the charity fundraising platform, 'Givey', which you can access using the 'Donate' button below. If you wish your donation to go to the Piano Fund, please indicate this in the 'Add a comment' field. As a Registered Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SC048944), we are able to reclaim tax on Gift-Aided cash donations, increasing their value by 25%. If your donation is eligible for Gift Aid, please complete the requested details so that we can boost the value of your donation.
