What you can give to
The University of Melbourne Symphony Orchestra Tour Fund
The University of Melbourne Symphony Orchestra Tour Fund supports opportunities for some of the nation’s finest aspiring musicians. Gifts to the Fund provide meaningful assistance for a range of key activities, including performance opportunities at world-class venues within Australia and across the globe.
Performing with a large orchestra in a professional setting allows musicians to hone their skills and prepares them for a successful career. Your gift will help us continue to develop Australia’s next generation of top classical musicians.
The VCA is producing the next generation of practising artists ready for the world’s stage. The goal of the Foundation is to provide opportunities for students through special projects and activities, masterclasses and scholarships.
These opportunities will ensure the VCA meets the highest educational standards and becomes an even stronger, more vibrant institution.
Gifts to support our Greatest Needs provide our Dean with the flexibility to use funds in a way that can most help the Faculty.
These gifts are most often used to support our top students and graduate students who need access to assistance so that they can excel and become leaders in Australian arts and music practice and research.
Scholarships, Awards and Other Programs
Scholarships can transform a student’s experience and opportunities for study. We welcome the chance to work with donors to create new scholarships and awards to benefit our students through annual gifts, endowments and bequests.
