Bequests, Foundations & Legacy

MOST® : Investing in our cultural future

Many of our activities started as individual or family bequests

What better way to honour your own or the wishes of a loved one than to establish an ongoing legacy in a specific area of creative or musical interest. For example, the Marianne Mathy Scholarship ('The Mathy'), first awarded in 1982, remains the featured award of the IFAC Australian Singing Competition; and the Armstrong-Martin Scholarship, first awarded in 1977, remains the respected award within one of our major professional development programmes, the Opera Awards (Australia).

MOST® is experienced in managing the personal and legal issues involved in the establishment of bequests and has a strong proven record in the development and administration of successful legacy programmes.
