Help Support Local Music


Why Your Support Matters

Hugh’s Room Live is a registered not-for-profit charitable organization dedicated to supporting the music community. Hugh’s Room Live has been a registered charity since 2019 and your support is the essential element in ensuring our continued growth and support of our music community. 

Every dollar donated  is eligible for a tax receipt which you’ll receive immediately when donating through Canada Helps.

Please consider becoming a monthly donor at any level. A monthly donation of $20 goes a long way to supporting our day-day-operations, enabling us to keep presenting the music, and supporting the artists you love.


Our Mortgagees

We purchased 296 Broadview in early July, 2023 without any support from government, and without any conventional financing.
Instead, our financing came from people who knew us, shared our vision, and were willing to trust that we could succeed.
They are:

Marina Stefanovic
Our vendor,  who had always wanted the building to be a music centre. In mid-June, she called, offering a $500K vendor-take-back mortgage.

Broadview Faith Centre
The congregation that conducts worship services in the building on Sundays. They agreed to lend us $700K interest free, in return for use of the building for their worship.

Our Bondholders

The following are our bondholders who, collectively, bought $1.3M of Hugh’s Bonds.
