Would you like to transform the life of a child? You can get started by going to our secure payment site to make a donation – or you can give through CanadaHelps. Don’t forget to give us your contact information so that we can issue your tax receipt.
There are lots of ways to join our musical community of giving. A gift of up to $1000 puts you in the ranks of our Music Lovers; with $1000 to $5000 you can stand out as a Soloist. For $5,000 to $10,000 you can step up to Concertmaster, while a gift of $10,000 to $25,000 launches your career as a Conductor. You can make an impression as a Maestro with a donation of $25,000 to $50,000. And to scale the Elysian heights, become a Sistema Toronto Visionario with your gift of $50,000 or more.
Whatever the size of your gift, it always has an impact. It costs a lot to deliver a program that's free of charge, and we can only do it with your support. Here’s how you can help:
$5000 - Covers the cost for one child for an entire year
$3500 - Buys instruments for a quartet: violin, viola, cello, and double bass
$2000 - Provides instruments for a trio: violin, viola, and cello
$1500 - Buys one double bass for a child
$1000 - Buys one cello
$500 - Buys a violin or viola
$350 - Gives one child a healthy snack every day during the program

We are a registered Canadian charity (CRA #8 1925 6603 RR0001). In making your decision to support Sistema Toronto, we encourage you to review our most recent audited financial statements:
Is there a Stradivarius in your attic? Is
your old violin, viola, or cello gathering dust? Been a while since you picked up that trumpet or clarinet? Make it sing again by donating it to Sistema Toronto. You'll be doing so much to transform the life of a child.
If you would like to give us your old instrument, we’ll have it
expertly appraised and issue you with a tax receipt for its fair market value.
Contact us at 416-545-0200 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more details. What a
great way to bring that silent music-maker back to life. And maybe it really is a Strad!
