Our Commitments - The BRIT Trust
Music is an powerful vehicle for delivering educational, cultural and therapeutic benefits to society. Back in 1989, a group of like-minded industry executives who believed in the power of music to positively influence society came together to create the BRIT Trust - whose raison d’être would be to support young people through music and education.
Since its inception the BRIT Trust has been able to distribute more than £20 million to a range of good causes thanks to the funds raised by the industry’s annual BRIT Awards. Its other sources of income emanate from the Classic BRIT Awards and The Music Industry Trusts’ Dinner, which seeks to raise proceeds through ticket sales and a charity auction each year.
Whilst The BRIT School and Nordoff Robbins Music Therapy are the two principal beneficiaries of the Trust, a great number of additional grassroots community projects have been the recipients of grants from the BRIT Trust.
• Young Persons Concert Foundation
• Musicians’ Benevolent Fund
• Roundhouse Trust
• Dame Vera Lynn Trust
• Youth Music Theatre UK
