Donations are vital for WASO to present inspiring and joyful concerts, and to positively change the lives of so many people in Western Australia throughout our now 90-year history. Over the last thirteen years, donations to our Annual Giving fund have become fundamental to the daily operations of the Orchestra, covering our core operating costs.
As a not-for-profit, charitable organisation, we are extremely proud to be supported by many individuals who, each year, renew their gift to our Annual Giving fund. Your Orchestra would be a very different one in its 90th anniversary year without this ongoing support.
Gifts to WASO’s Annual Giving fund support our ability to achieve artistic excellence, secure the finest guest conductors and soloists, present a diverse program of Education & Community Engagement activities across WA and work in partnership with Western Australia’s opera and ballet companies.
Donations of tax-deductible, annual gifts are acknowledged as follows:
|Principal Conductor's Circle||$20,000+|
|Impresario Patron||$10,000 - $19,999|
|Maestro Patron||$5,000 - $9,999|

All Patrons & Friends receive a copy of our Encore newsletter and are invited to special events throughout the year. Patrons from Tutti level and above are presented with a specially crafted WASO Patron pin from The Perth Mint and invited to additional exclusive events with our musicians. WASO proudly acknowledges Patrons in concert programs and on our website, unless anonymity is requested.
You can now choose to give regular donations to WASO and support your Orchestra on an ongoing basis. Regular donations are simple and easy to set up, and every gift makes a difference. Your chosen amount is automatically debited from your credit card and you can choose to give every month, 3 months, 6 months or annually. Your regular donation is secure and can be changed, paused or cancelled at any time. At the end of the financial year you will receive a receipt for your contributions.
