Want to make a difference?

You can help the next generation of kiwis in a number of different ways...

Donations are eligible for tax credit!

After you make your donation, you will receive a receipt and can claim a 33% tax credit on your donation from the Inland Revenue Department. That means if you give $100 you'll get $33 back!

To claim your credit, fill in a credit claim form (IR526), attach a copy of your donation receipt and send to the Inland Revenue Department. WMET will acknowledge every donation at the time of payment and issue a donation receipt.

Our Funding

The Wellington Music Education Trust is supported solely by private donations. 

No government funding is received. 

The trust is growing rapidly and relies on generous donations to subsidise or cover instrument hire prices as well as expand the instrument library. 

WMET was founded by Alanna Jones and Lachlan Radford in 2019 and kickstarted with a successful Boosted campaign which enabled us to purchase eight small double basses. Along with donations of pre-loved instruments, we have hit the ground running and are supplying Wellingtonians with an accessible music education through Piccolo Bass. We now have students throughout Wellington Central and extending as far as Palmerston North.
