WA Youth Jazz Orchestra (WAYJO) moved into the Eighth Avenue venue this year and established an online fundraising Pozible page to support renovations.
Marketing co-ordinator Adam Livingston said the campaign was the first step in a multi-phased fundraising plan.
He said the money would go towards equipment and fitting out the office and rehearsal space.
�Future campaigns are planned which will focus on building signage, acoustic treatments and eventually bringing the building up to code as a public performing arts facility,� he said. �The funds required to bring the building up to code are significant, with initial estimates being upwards of $3 million.
�Physical donations of items such as vacuum cleaners, fridges, music amplifiers, equipment will also be welcome.�
