How IMS Prussia Cove is funded

IMS Prussia charges students a fee for the Masterclass seminars and participants at Open Chamber Music contribute towards their board and lodging. We raise additional funds through Friends' subscriptions, seminar concerts, the Autumn Tour and other fundraising concerts and events during the year. However, this does not cover the full costs of running the seminars and we receive no government funding. Every year we need to meet the shortfall.

There are a number of ways that you can contribute by giving funds, sponsoring a concert, making donations in kind, or through volunteer help. We welcome support from charitable trusts and foundations and from individuals keen to help foster the spirit of learning and excellence which is to be found at the seminars. 

£1,000 will sponsor a concert in Cornwall 
£1,500 will provide a bursary for a student at the Masterclass seminar 
£2,500 will help us provide fees for our faculty pianists during Masterclasses
£2,500 will provide sponsorship for a concert outside Cornwall 
£5,000 will help us to provide fees for our outstanding professors 
£5,000 will cover the cost of 8 musicians at Open Chamber Music 
£10,000 will sponsor a specific faculty during the Masterclass seminar

Annual Review 2019

Please find an overview of our work in 2019 here.

We have an active Friends organisation and Donors' Circles who help to promote and support the work done at the seminars. The Friends arrange the concerts in Cornwall and form the core of our loyal and enthusiastic concert audience. 

We also welcome longer-term funding made possible through legacies and bequests. if you are already a supporter and the valuable work it does for musicians worldwide, and for audiences in Britain and locally in Cornwall, you could consider leaving a legacy to IMS Prussia Cove in your will. 

If you are interested in supporting us in any way, please contact the office.
