Honour Someone Special
By partnering with Sistema Toronto as a sponsor, your company can show its commitment to developing stronger communities and visibly align itself with a movement that helps at-risk kids reach their full potential as engaged and responsible citizens. If your company is interested in sponsoring a student, classroom, ensemble, or centre, we would love to hear from you! For more information on becoming a sponsor, please get in touch!
Stocks, Securities & Gifts-In-Kind
A donation of publicly traded securities is one of the easiest and most effective ways to support Sistema Toronto. You may give stocks, bonds, futures and options, as well as shares in mutual funds and you will pay no tax on the capital gain. To make the gift of stocks & securities, download our Securities Transfer Form.
We provide all of our students with musical instruments to learn on. A new violin or viola costs $500 and a new cello costs $1000. To help us reduce these costs, donate your unused or outgrown instruments. We need violins, violas, cellos, strings, and percussion instruments (hand drums, djembes, drum sticks).
Not sure if your instrument is usable? Often times, it is more affordable to repair an instrument than it is to purchase a new one. We would still like to hear from you!
Host an Event
Hosting an event is a fun way to get involved in your community! Use your next concert, special event, party, garage sale, etc. as a way to fundraise for Sistema Toronto and raise awareness about the program. To get started, view our Third Party Event Information Package.
Once you have your ideas ready, fill in our Event Registration Form so that we can provide support as needed. We can send you resources, information about the program, pledge forms, and provide donors with official tax receipts. Let us know if you would like some help getting started!
