Palmusic UK believe knowledge and love of music enhances young lives and builds cultural bridges which assist peace. We are a small innovative music charity seeking a Treasurer/Trustee to join our board. We help young people in Palestine to enrich their lives by learning to play classical and oriental music.
We raise funds from donations and trusts in the UK and support students at all levels in Palestine and at UK music colleges. We arrange concerts around the country and on line to raise funds and showcase Palestinian musicians in particular. We are based in London but currently hold meetings on Zoom as our board are widely spread.
The charity has two part time staff and the role involves supervising the keeping of financial records and the preparation of accounts for Charity Commission and Company Law purposes (we are a Company Limited by Guarantee) and helping attract donations. The candidate may also become a Trustee of the charity with responsibility with others for the general management of the charity. The Trustees normally meet four times a year and the Finance and Fundraising Committee meets more often as required.
We particularly support the Edward Said National Conservatory of Music which has branches in Jerusalem, Ramallah, Bethlehem, Nablus, Gaza and Birzeit.
