A major part of our SYO operations continue as a result of the sponsorship support received from organisations & individuals.

LEGACY PARTNERS for Shoalhaven Youth Orchestra

Residents and supporters of the SYO are encouraged to make provision in their wills to support its longer-term aims.

Such testamentary provision may be worded for such a donor as follows (as a guide) :
“I give free of all duties and taxes to the Shoalhaven Youth Orchestra Inc (ABN 82 454 019 217)

(specify $ amount, or percentage of estate, or describe property or other assets) absolutely.”

Or should a donor decide to request their gift to be directed to a specific program or aspect of SYO operation:

“I give free of all duties and taxes to the Shoalhaven Youth Orchestra Inc (ABN 82 454 019 217) (specify $ amount, or percentage of estate, or describe property or other assets) to be applied in furtherance of the objects of (insert the specific program or project).”

When informed of such a bequest, with donor permission the SYO will acknowledge their support in a variety of ways.

By naming the Orchestra as a beneficiary in their Will, they will become listed as a Legacy Partner – and receive invitations to special events each year and have the opportunity to meet our young musicians and hear them perform.

In event of the donor’s death and completion of their legacy wishes for the Orchestra their Legacy Partner status continues and is recognised in perpetuity.

TAX DEDUCTIBILITY – the S.Y.O. as a registered cultural charity may issue tax-deductible receipts, for donations including legacy donations at time of gifting in an estate’s execution. However the specific tax situation of an estate finally determines this, as established by its executor.




Our deepest thanks to those giving financial support to the SYO in the past year. To become a Partner please complete and return SYO Partners form 2015 .
