About the Foundation
With a portfolio of 12 properties, including UNESCO World Heritage-listed Hyde Park Barracks and The Mint, philanthropy is essential to ensure we continue to care and preserve our unique sites for future generations.
Our cultural institutions are our societies' collective memory banks, and supporting them in this era of rapid change is more important than ever before.
Donations and financial gifts help us to invest in our 12 historic houses and museums, grow our collections and preserve the heritage and history of colonial Australia. Sydney Living Museums connects our past, present and future through our historic and heritage houses and museums, not only showcasing an historic sense of place, but being part of a contemporary and vibrant future.
The Sydney Living Museums Foundation is a public company that administers a public ancillary fund with deductible gift recipient status (Item 2) and charitable tax concessions (GST and Income Tax Exempt).
