Support the Band

Lake Macquarie Winds is grateful for the generous support of Create NSW that allows us to continue our music, retain our membership, and meet our financial commitments.

Donate to the Band

Lake Macquarie Winds has been granted deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status by the Australian Taxation Office.

DGR status means that any donations made to the band (of more than $2) can allow the donor to claim that donation as a tax deduction.

We operate a Public Fund into which such donations are deposited for this purpose, and encourage the public to donate.

Membership subscriptions are the main source of revenue for LMW.

Subscription fees are used primarily to fund:

  • Insurance premiums
  • Association memberships
  • Uniforms
  • Administration costs
  • Music purchases
  • Support for young musicians entering competitions and encouragement awards

Sponsorship is sought for specific events along with financial support, services and donations of time and products for:

  • Instruments
  • Music
  • Scholarships
  • Uniforms

Sponsorship by the local business community, government bodies and ordinary people support the mission of the band to continue to provide community service performances and contribute to the ongoing training of young and not so young musicians. Our community band would not survive without our valued supporters.
