Support OFE's future
Without the generous support of our friends, patrons, and sponsors, the unique work OFE does would not be possible. Your donation will help to sustain the orchestra’s outstanding artistic programme and ensure that our vital environmental and educational work continues to grow.
We have options for becoming a friend or patron, giving as a trust or foundation, corporate sponsorship, or simply making a donation. Find out more below about the importanve of your support, and the exclusive benefits you receive in return.
Thank you for considering supporting OFE.
Support us while you shop!
One of the easiest ways to fundraise for us is simply by shopping online at Amazon, John Lewis, the Post Office, and hundreds of others. And the best bit? It's all at no extra cost to you. Sign up to one or both of the schemes below and then just shop as normal, while raising free funds for OFE. Please consider using them: a little goes a long way!
Support our musicians
Our musicians are young freelancers at the start of their careers, so the wholesale shutdown of the live music industry has put their livelihoods in an exceptionally precarious position. Please consider making a donation to help them through this difficult time.
