NSO is a non-profit, charitable organisation. We operate with generous support from our sponsors and funding partners.
Become a Sponsor
We are very grateful to all sponsors and patrons who have given financial support over the years. Amateur orchestras need resources to help meet production costs, to enable future planning and to help purchase instruments and equipment. The following sponsors in particular have assisted the Nelson Symphony Orchestra in this way:
- Canterbury Community Trust
- Arts Council Nelson
- Creative New Zealand
- Fresh Choice Nelson
- Nelson Pine Industries Ltd
Businesses and individuals also sponsor the orchestra, providing resources to fund specific projects, commissions, travel and accommodation for visiting artists, recordings, promotion and scholarships.
