Give Share the magic of the Sydney Opera House
Your gift inspires confidence and creativity
Can you recall the first time you saw the sails? The hush of the crowd when the curtain was raised? A performance that took your breath away? Today, you can help create these magical moments for children all over Australia.
Help overcome disadvantage and distance, so no child misses out
Many remote and disadvantaged Australian school children face barriers that make it challenging to experience the arts. Some can only dream of visiting the Sydney Opera House.
You can change this by donating to our schools program today.
The Sydney Opera House schools program provides arts and creative experiences to over 300,000 school children each year, onsite and online – educating, inspiring, and delighting students across the country.
Every year, the Sydney Opera House must raise all funds for its schools program. We need generous people like you to help. Your donation will:
- Cover ticket costs for disadvantaged primary and secondary school students
- Connect children across regional Australia with the arts through free online programs
- Enable excursions to the Sydney Opera House including tours, workshops and performances
- Fund artist visits to Australian schools, stimulating learning and creativity in classrooms, and
- Engage teachers in professional development workshops that reposition attitudes towards science, technology, engineering and maths subjects to inspire career possibilities.
We can’t do it without you. Your generosity is vital in making sure all children can experience the magic of the Sydney Opera House. Please, donate today.

After the play with all the amazing actors, I want to be just like them.

Every child across Australia - no matter where they live - should be able to experience the Sydney Opera House. Many families living in remote & regional Australia rarely have access to live arts experiences.
Some can only dream of visiting their Opera House.
