Our Supporters

Donors to ANAM, ‘ANAMbassadors‘, are music lovers who wish to ensure the finest young musicians from Australia and New Zealand receive the best training and performance experiences possible.

In 2019, philanthropic support provided for a third of ANAM’s budget. That means one in three lessons were provided, or one in three musicians were able to train at ANAM thanks to donor support.

"Supporting ANAM makes me feel connected in a meaningful way to some extraordinary human beings.”
Loris Orthwein, ANAMbassador Vanguard Donor
