Support the work of DESUK

There are various ways in which you can support DESUK, in addition to being a Member.

We have opportunities available for sponsorship of DESUK's Events, our Newsletter Blue Light, a chart in our Music Library, or perhaps you would like to make a donation.

You may donate to the Society by credit or debit card, or through your PayPal account. Select your choice, and then click to review your selections.



Any amount is gratefully received, and will be acknowledged. If you donate £100 or more, you can have your name associated with a manuscript in our ever-growing Music Library.


To explore sponsoring DESUK activities or events, including our Annual Jazz Party, please contact us.

For example; £500 would sponsor one issue of our Newsletter, Blue Light; £500 would sponsor the AGM and Jazz Party.

The name of the Sponsor would feature prominently on all advertising for the project.

Adopt a Manuscript

DESUK maintains a Music Library of printed charts of the music of Duke Ellington, Billy Strayhorn and other band-members. Each work has been transcribed using the original hand-written manuscripts as a basis. A donation of £100 or more enables us to add and curate another work. Works from the Library are used for study, performance and recording.

If you would like to sponsor a score for £100, you can do so using one of the following buttons. Your or your business' name, or another name of your choosing, will be associated with your chosen score (or scores) and your chosen name will be placed on this site.
