The Heritage Fund

Our history. Our heritage. Our home.


Sydney Living Museums cares for significant historic sites that are filled with fascinating stories of people from the past who lived and worked at these places.

It is thanks to the thoughtful support of people like you who understand and value the history and heritage of our city that the story of Sydney and our state can be told.

While we at Sydney Living Museums may care for these precious sites, we know that they truly belong to us all. But, unsurprisingly, these places need more than just our care. They and their collections often require urgent and extensive repair. This is when heritage specialists will be called upon to stabilise a sandstone turret, rid termites from colonial pillars or restore well-loved chairs to their former dignity.

The Heritage Fund has been established to enable Sydney Living Museums to immediately undertake any urgent and necessary work on our sites and collections. Your tax-deductible donation to the Annual Appeal 2022 will directly support The Heritage Fund, ensuring that our unique history and heritage will be there for future generations to enjoy.

It is because of the thoughtful generosity of our donors that Sydney Living Museums is able to continue to preserve what is so valuable and significant. You really do make a difference to what can be achieved.

To ensure that our sites are protected from the ravages of time, the Sydney Living Museums Foundation has established The Heritage Fund. This Fund will enable urgent and ongoing repairs to be undertaken by heritage specialists as needed. To achieve this goal, the Foundation now seeks the generous support of our donors to raise $500,000. 

Give generously and support our heritage.
