Music Fund supporter Annie O'Leary set up a film and salsa night in Birmingham to raise funds for the Music Fund for CubaWhy not organise your own fundraising event or get friends and family to sponsor you on an organised event. If you are involved in Cuban arts, run or attend salsa classes, why not ask your group to support the Music Fund for Cuba. 

If you are thinking of fundraising for the Music Fund (a sponsored run or special event etc) you can raise sponsorship money quickly and easily online with your own personalised webpage through our JustGiving pages. It takes only minutes to put your details on. 

Friends and family will be able to support you by donating online with a credit or debit card - so no more running around with paper sponsorship forms, or chasing cash after your event! And if they are a UK tax payer, just one click and they can add 25% to the value of their donation at no extra cost.

Click here and you can start raising funds for the Music Fund for Cuba today. Or call 0207 490 5715 for more details.

Fundraising ideas

There are all sorts of events that supporters have participated in over recent years from running a marathon, to fundraising gigs and concerts, salsa and film nights, selling plants, donating proceeds from car boot sales, holding collections at their salsa classes or in their work places, selling items at craft fairs, the list goes on.

We are happy to help with any events that you organise or get involved with by supplying leaflets posters, fundraising t-shirts, branded collection tins and any other information or support that we can. For more information please email Natasha Hickman or call 0207 490 5715.

Gifts in memory or celebration

Giving in celebration

By including MFFC in the celebration of a special occasion you not only support us financially, but also increase awareness of our work.

Instead of collecting an array of unwanted gifts for your wedding, birthday or anniversary, why not make a difference by asking for donations to the MFFC and extend the goodwill of the occasion far beyond the day itself, supporting young artists and musicians in Cuba.

The easiest and most cost-effective way to collect donations from friends and family is by setting up an online fundraising page on our JustGiving site here. 

Alternatively, donations can be posted to us, by downloading our donation form here.

If you want to thank guests at your celebration or memorial event for making contributions to the Music Fund on your behalf, we can provide MFFC thank you cards (each with an image from Cuba) for you to write your own message, and a leaflet explaining our work. Please contact Natasha at or call 0207 490 5715 for more details.

You may like to donate in lieu of flowers, organise a collection through your funeral director, host a memorial event, or even set up a tribute web page where friends and family and donate and leave messages. You can set up a tribute or donation page easily by visiting our JustGiving page here.
