Support Us

NCMA is a non-profit, charitable organisation. We operate with generous support from Nelson City Council in the form of an annual grant as well as funding from a small number of key funding partners.

However, we also rely heavily on the support from individuals who ensure the ongoing success of NCMA.

Every donation that NCMA receives goes towards enhancing the experience for all users of our facilities.  This may be through a tuition-fee scholarship, support to purchase instruments or creating improved facilities and resources for our students and audiences.

The key areas where funds are directed:

  • increasing access and participation
  • capital development fund.
