Can I make a donation in memory of someone? How does that work?

Yes, you may make a donation in honour or in memory of someone. Let us know who you would like to honour in the online donation form and we will send a card to the honouree or their family. We will not include the amount of the gift in the card to the honouree. The charitable tax receipt for the gift will be sent to you.

Do you accept piano donations? What about other instruments?

We are currently looking for violins, violas, cellos, and percussion instruments. Unfortunately, we are not able to accept piano donations. Please visit our Gift-In-Kind page for more information.

If you have an unused brass instrument (trumpet, trombone, tuba), please consider making a donation to the Jordan Family Foundation.

You are always welcome to check with us if you have an instrument you would like to donate. Please contact the Sistema Toronto office at [email protected] or 416-545-0200.

Can I volunteer for Sistema Toronto?

We are always looking for volunteers interested in making a difference in the community. Please visit our Volunteer page to learn more about how you can help out.

Please note that volunteers that work directly with students or in our centres must complete a Vulnerable Sector Screening. 

What happened to The Red Violin?

We're still hosting our annual fundraiser and 'casual gala', but we're now calling it something different. Please consider attending the event in April 2019 and join our mailing list so you are notified when it's time to save the date. For more information, visit our gala page.
