The Rodolfus Foundation


We need your help

The Rodolfus Foundation receives no public funding and relies completely on the generosity of its Friends and supporters. Without your help, we would be unable to continue our important work encouraging more young people to discover the joy of choral singing. 

There are many ways in which you can support our work.

Why support The Rodolfus Foundation?

The Rodolfus Foundation offers a number of unique advantages to more disadvantaged young singers.

  1. Our work with local engagement partners encourages participation from talented children who may not have considered choral singing in the past.

  2. These children can receive free access to music education at the highest-level from the age of 8-25 years through our bursary scheme, starting on the Junior Choral Course.

  3. Long-term engagement means that teachers can track children’s progress over time and tailor support, resulting in a friendly, safe learning environment for vulnerable or disadvantaged participants

  4. Participants going on to join the Rodolfus Choir receive access to professional performance opportunities and have the option to apply for further financial support via the Chris Bennie Fund

Donations from our supporters go towards funding course bursaries, the Chris Bennie Fund, and the organisation's core costs. We currently receive no statutory support, making your contribution absolutely vital.
