Support Your Orchestra

Your Orchestra Wellington presents concerts for all ages and fulfils a valuable role accompanying opera, choir, ballet and musical theatre in the region. We rely on Wellington’s generosity to do what we do.

Aside from the usual tangible benefits that the Orchestra can provide, nothing is more valuable than knowing that your contribution goes directly toward supporting the activity of a longstanding charitable organisation.

Collective Generosity

We are grateful for the on-going support of our Funders, Sponsors, Partners and Donors. Support from generous individuals is increasingly important for us so that we are able to provide high quality orchestral experiences across our region and we would love for you to join our community of Donors. For this purpose, we have redefined our fundraising programme to highlight the significance that each and every contribution makes to support our continued role in the cultural life of Wellington communities.
