WASO Philanthropy Become a part of the WASO family.
WASO is a not-for-profit charitable organisation that increasingly depends on the generosity of its Patrons to remain at the cultural heart of Western Australia, presenting joyful and inspiring orchestral music both on stage at Perth Concert Hall and across our vast state. Many people are surprised to learn that revenue from ticket sales only covers approximately 25% of WASO’s operating costs. Our philanthropic partnerships have therefore become a vital income stream for the Orchestra in our mission to touch souls and enrich lives through music. Our Philanthropy program continues to grow and in our 90th anniversary year we are proud to witness the enthusiasm and pride felt by our philanthropic community. The fine level of musicianship on stage, the quality of our visiting artists and the increased breadth of our Community Engagement & Education programs would not have been possible to achieve without philanthropic support. It is our Patrons’ generosity and ongoing commitment that sustains the finest live classical music in Western Australia, and for that we would like to thank you.
In order to also look to the future with confidence, we invite those of you who are not yet WASO Patrons or Friends to become philanthropic partners in our 90th anniversary year. This will help ensure the Orchestra continues to play not only for our children, but also for our children’s children. Our Patrons enjoy a special relationship with the Orchestra and receive unique access and exclusive opportunities to enrich their orchestral experience. There are different ways to support the Orchestra in accordance with what you feel most passionate about, and we invite you to get in touch with our Philanthropy team to discuss your philanthropic vision. We look forward to bringing you into our world!
