The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra is your orchestra.

At a time when the people of Aotearoa New Zealand are coming together to support all things local, we invite you to make a gift to your national symphony orchestra.

Our mission is to provide inspiring world-class musical experiences to Kiwis of all walks of life, across the country. We believe in nurturing New Zealand’s next generation of musicians, educating young people on the power of orchestral music, and extending our reach into communities the NZSO hasn’t visited before.  

We can’t do it alone. Your support is vital. 

The cost of operating a world-class orchestra continues to rise, and with the impact of COVID-19 on the New Zealand arts sector, the NZSO is relying on the generosity of our supporters now more than ever.

By donating to the NZSO, you enrich the lives of our players, community musicians, school children, and most importantly you: our audience members.


Personal Giving

A personal donation to the NZSO can come in many different shapes and sizes. However large or small your gift to the Orchestra is, you are providing critical funding to help us remain on budget and create meaningful, inspiring musical experiences for Kiwis of all ages.

Corporate Support

Our partnerships with New Zealand businesses ensure that the NZSO continues to perform to a world-class standard. In turn, the high-level of visibility that stems from arts sponsorship connects our corporate partners directly with their target markets. Corporate partners also enjoy great hospitality at a wide range of NZSO events.

Trusts and Foundations

The NZSO is fortunate to receive additional funding from a number of trusts and foundations across the country. This, combined with the generous support of our NZSO Supporters and corporate partners, helps us inspire, educate and perform for Kiwis of all ages.
