Friends of WAAPA

For more than 35 years, the Friends of the Academy have been assisting students at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA).

Details

Description

The small but hard working Friends of the Academy Committee ensures students continue to directly receive the benefits of the Friends’ fundraising efforts and pastoral care. The help provided by the Friends Committee on behalf of the membership takes many forms, including individual assistance grants for students, a ‘meet and greet’ service for new interstate or country students arriving in Perth without local contacts, opportunities to interact with their audiences and ongoing recognition of high achievers after they leave the Academy. While annual membership fees from the more than 1,000 members of the Friends help provide student assistance, most of the money to pay for these benefits is generated from fundraising each year. Fundraising activities include Friends performances, hosting behind-the-scenes tours of the Academy, and providing food and drink at the Academy’s annual Open Day. The Friends of the Academy benefit financially from selected student performances each semester. The performances are billed as special ‘Friends Events’ and we rely heavily on members of the Friends and the general public to support these shows because we receive a small fee to contribute towards students travel grants.
