Philanthropy has the power to sustain, build and enrich our lives.
Donations are vital for WASO to present inspiring and joyful concerts and continue to positively change the lives of so many people in Western Australia. 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 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.
