Remembering WNO in your will

You may have been inspired by one of our operas, moved by our work in hospitals, schools and the community, blown away by our incredible orchestra and chorus or are eager to help us develop young talent for generations to come.


How you can leave a gift in your will 

Unrestricted gifts are invaluable to us as they can be used towards the area with the greatest need. Alternatively, gifts can be directed to our Endowment Fund or an area of our work that you’re inspired by

  • Ensuring the future of the world-renowned WNO Chorus and Orchestra
  • Supporting a new production
  • Education and community projects
  • Our work to develop young people at the start of their careers in opera, whether on the stage or behind the scenes.

Every gift, no matter the size, makes a real difference. We are extremely grateful for each gift we receive and the generosity you show us as a supporter of WNO. 


My Aunt and Uncle were Friends of WNO for many years. I remember how eagerly the arrival of a new season's programme would be awaited, and how they would pore over it for ages, deciding which performances to attend. They were always keen to do what they could to encourage the arts in Wales. WNO was a key component in this and as lifelong music and opera lovers, it was no surprise that my Aunt and Uncle were such ardent fans. In this spirit they left a bequest to WNO – hoping to help ensure that future generations had similar access to the very best that opera has to offer.
