THANKING OUR DONORS

We are pleased to recognise our donors’ generosity, and their importance to the NZSO’s success, through programmes created especially for our annual supporters and bequest donors.

NZSO Supporters

The NZSO Supporters Programme was established in 2009 as our way to recognise and thank donors to the NZSO Foundation.

Donors receive NZSO Supporter recognition for a year. Donations of all sizes provide you with special opportunities to deepen your relationship with the NZSO.

Events for NZSO Supporters are offered in our seven major touring locations of Auckland, Hamilton, Napier, Tauranga, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin. Events vary by location, but each city offers multiple opportunities for local Supporters to gain a unique perspective on the Orchestra.

The NZSO Bequest Programme
(In Memory of Vincent Aspey)

Named in honour of the Orchestra’s first Concertmaster, the Vincent Aspey Society was created in 2009 to acknowledge those who make special provisions for the NZSO’s future through their bequest plans. It comprises people who have notified the NZSO that they have included a gift to the NZSO Foundation in their Will.

Vincent Aspey Society members are an important part of our NZSO family and receive recognition similar to NZSO Supporters.
