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:
- Arts Council Nelson
- Arts Council Tasman
- Lion Foundation
- Mainland Foundation
- Nelson Building Society
- Network Tasman Trust
- Pub Charity
Businesses and individuals also sponsor the orchestra, providing resources to fund specific projects, commissions, travel and accommodation for visiting artists, recordings, promotion and scholarships.
