Ways to Support

Your donation to Toronto Summer Music supports artists and ensures the future of high-quality classical music in the city, in the summer, and for years to come. Read below for the different ways your gift can make a lasting impact.

Donations can also be made by phone at 647-430-5699, ext. 114.


Become a Fellowship Donor 

All TSM Academy Fellows admitted to our Emerging Artist Program in the Chamber Music Institute and Art of Song streams attend tuition-free, thanks to the generosity of our Fellowship Donors.  

Your Fellowship Donation allows an emerging artist to study with the top mentors in their field, through rehearsals, workshops, and masterclasses, and to perform alongside them in mainstage TSM Festival concerts. By providing tuition to a TSM Academy Fellow, you help break down economic barriers and invest in the future of classical music. 


Stocks and Securities 

By making a donation of securities, you are investing in the future of music in Canada! 

Through a gift of stock, you will receive the benefit of a tax receipt for the fair market value of the stock, and will not be subject to the capital gains tax for your donation. 


Legacy Giving

By making a planned gift to the Toronto Summer Music Foundation you are supporting the development of emerging stars in chamber music and art song (the TSM Academy) and supporting a cultural gem in the heart of the city that benefits a diverse audience of tourists and Torontonians (the TSM Festival). You are ensuring that both the Festival and Academy continue to operate on solid financial footing and continue to benefit all of its stakeholders. The TSM Foundation provides critical support to the Academy, helping to launch the careers of talented and deserving young artists from all over the world. Legacy gifts will help the Foundation to sustain and expand Toronto Summer Music’s activities, which provide enjoyment and enrichment for its members, its artists, and the general public. 


Corporate Giving

Your commitment to Toronto Summer Music allows us to provide exceptional classical music programming for the public. Your support also helps us provide an incomparable coaching and performance environment for a select group of talented young artists. As a corporate sponsor, you have the opportunity to reach out to Toronto-based audiences, internationally-renowned artists, and emerging stars, all within the context of a summer celebration of music. At TSM we believe in mutually beneficial partnerships; customized benefit packages may include logo placement, complimentary tickets, access to concerts and artists, and more. TSM works with each corporation to extend sponsorship reach and to develop creative strategies appropriate to their specific interest and marketing goals.
