Cycle of Giving

Piano+ is a not-for-profit organisation and we receive minimal financial support from government. Piano+ relies on donations to continue its legacy since 1977, of providing a platform that nurtures and celebrates the next generation of world class pianists.

Cycle of Giving is an annual giving program which provides vital support to enable Piano+ to not only survive but to thrive. By supporting Piano+ you will play a pivotal role: helping young talented musicians become great artists; fostering the love of piano music and piano playing through our masterclasses and other education programs; and enabling more piano music recitals and festivals to reach both metropolitan and regional audiences throughout Australia.
