Annual Giving

Over the last twelve years, donations to our Annual Giving program have become fundamental to the day-to-day operations of the Orchestra, covering our core operating costs. Donations are vital for WASO to continue presenting inspiring and joy filled concerts and positively changing the lives of so many people in Western Australia.

As a not-for-profit organisation, we are extremely proud to be supported by the many individuals who, each year, renew their gift to our Annual Giving program. The Orchestra would be a very different one without this ongoing support.

Gifts to WASO’s Annual Giving program support our ability to achieve artistic excellence, secure the finest guest conductors and soloists, present a diverse program of Education and Community Engagement activities across WA and work in partnership with Western Australia’s opera and ballet companies.

You can now give regular donations to WASO and support your Orchestra on an ongoing basis. Regular donations are simple and easy to set up, and every donation helps, no matter how big or small.

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.
