Philanthropy at Sydney Living Museums

 

We are pleased to welcome our new Head of Development and Fundraising, Joy England. Joy is looking forward to meeting many of our generous donors and supporters who share her passion for the outstanding work done at Sydney Living Museums. 

Why do we need philanthropic support?

Donations and financial gifts help us to preserve our 12 historic houses and museums, grow our collections and invest in preserving the heritage and history of colonial and convict Australia. Sydney Living Museums properties connect the past, present and future, and showcase not only an historic sense of place, but a contemporary and vibrant future. 

The Sydney Living Museums Foundation, headed by Chairman Edward Simpson, supports and assists the Board of Trustees by encouraging philanthropic support and interest in the work of Sydney Living Museums. With a portfolio of 12 properties including Hyde Park Barracks Museum (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) and The Mint, philanthropy is essential to ensure we continue to care and preserve our unique sites for future generations.

Funds raised by the Foundation are applied to different purposes including:

• Acquisition of items for collections

• Specific projects for example, the replacement of the 19th Century drapery at Vaucluse House

• Unique research projects  for example, The Dowling Music Project  

• Education programs

• Exhibitions and public programs 

If you would like to find out more about how you can support Sydney Living Museums in a variety of ways, please call the Head of Development and Fundraising, Joy England (02) 8239 2433 or email joye@sydneylivingmuseums.com.au
