For over 125 years decades, the BANSW has been a critical influence in supporting community band in New South Wales. Membership fees and event income alone does not fully cover the many costs associated with running the Association. With as little as 20% of its revenue in most years from government sources, the Association also relies heavily on donors and sponsors’ generosity. As a non-profit organisation managed mostly by volunteers with minimal paid administration support, BANSW needs to strengthen its operations’ long-term sustainability.
The BANSW is a registered charity with the Australian Charites and Non-for-Profit Commission. We urge you to consider supporting BANSW through a donation.
HOW YOU CAN DONATE
Donations to various BANSW projects are tax-deductible. Our current project, the Australian National Online Festival of Bands, can accept tax-deductible donations.
Make a tax-deductible donation here: Australian Cultural Fund.
Support from donors is indispensable to ensuring the Australian National Online Festival of Bands becomes a reality and can have the impact that it needs to in the music community. Whereas in a live event, ticket revenue goes a long way in covering an event’s costs, this online event has many of the same expenses as a live event; only it doesn’t have a broad revenue stream.
General donations to the BANSW are not tax-deductible. Your support here goes to where it is most needed, in supporting the administration which, without it, the BANSW wouldn’t exist.
You can donate by direct deposit to our account. Please email your details to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can provide a letter of acknowledgement.
