If your life has been enriched by music, we invite you to play a role in its future by sharing your love of music with future generations with a gift in your will.
By including WASO in your estate planning, you are making a positive statement about what you believe in, and the importance of the arts in the community.
We consider these gifts (also known as charitable bequests) very special as they represent your musical legacy. Bequests are preserved in our Endowment Fund – a capital investment fund earning dividends year upon year providing financial support and stability to WASO in perpetuity.
Your legacy will enable Western Australians to enjoy beautiful performances and transformative education and community engagement experiences well into the future, and provide support for the development of young artists, commission new works and help us bring music to our regions.
Dr Glenda Campbell-Evans
WASO Patron & Bequestor
"We benefit from the talents, foresight and generosity of those who have gone before us. The contributions others have made to build community and culture enriches our lives and creates experiences that otherwise would not be possible. The vitality of WASO is created by the musicians, audience, professional staff, Patrons and Friends, corporate sponsors and volunteers. WASO is the musical icon it is because of the collective skill, effort and vision of its past and current contributors.
We learn to take turns in kindergarten. It is now my turn to contribute to WASO as others have contributed before me. It is my turn to be more than an audience member and volunteer – to do more than enjoy WASO. It is my turn to repay the debt I owe to those who have made WASO the inspiration it is. By making a bequest I hope I create for future music lovers, what others have created for me."
When you remember WASO in your Will, you will be invited to join our Symphony Circle. Members enjoy unique opportunities and events throughout the year designed to keep you at the heart of the Orchestra.
Your commitment will also be honoured with a beautiful gold pin exclusive to Symphony Circle members, as a memento of your wonderful commitment to WASO. You will also be given the opportunity to be recognised within WASO publications, such as concert programs and our website.
