With only 14% of our funding coming from government sources (industry standards can range from 50% to 90%), WAYO relies solely on the generosity of private and corporate supporters. Their unwavering support has enabled us to continue providing exceptional musical training and performance opportunities for young Western Australians. We are deeply grateful for their contributions, which have been vital in helping us thrive.
For nearly half a century, WAYO has been the ultimate catalyst for young individuals to attain greatness through their love of music, all while fostering essential attributes such as self-esteem, discipline, teamwork, leadership, and performance skills.
As a prominent and extensive youth orchestra program in Australia, boasting over 400 members from Perth, South West WA, and beyond, WAYO holds steadfastly to its pledge of investing in our young musicians’ potential and aspirations.
It is noteworthy that WAYO is a registered charity with The Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC), indicative of our commitment to serve the community’s greater good.
