Case Study: Canberra Symphony Orchestra -  HeartStrings

HeartStrings is a program that is funded through donations from the Canberra Symphony Orchestra’s patrons and partners, and the ACT Government. HeartStrings provides tickets to individuals and families who would enjoy attending a concert but cannot because of financial restrictions, social isolation and other factors. CSO allocates donated tickets across various concert offerings and distributes them to registered charitable organisations, community organisations and not-for-profits, who then pass the tickets on to their nominated recipients.

In 2016 CSO gave approximately 550 tickets through HeartStrings.
