CSO Foundation

The CSO Foundation Trust, created in 1994, is dedicated to securing the future of the Christchurch Symphony Orchestra through strategic investments.

The Foundation is independent of the CSO Trust which governs the CSO but works in close harmony with the board to support the orchestra.

The CSO Foundation Trust is registered with the Charities Commission and gifts to the Foundation may be tax deductible in accordance with taxation legislation.

Gifts to the Foundation of any size will make a difference to securing the future of music in Christchurch and the South Island. Please consider making the CSO Foundation Trust a beneficiary of your estate and leave a musical legacy for the orchestra.

    Through planned giving, you can help us build a solid foundation for the future of the CSO and music in Christchurch by making a gift at a date of your choosing or by leaving one in your will. 

    The Foundation is the proud supporter of CSO Concertmaster Martin Riseley.
