Benefactors:  Becoming a benefactor

Information for prospective benefactors of the Library


How can you become a Benefactor?

As we continue to develop as a community and a University it is our hope and wish that one day more generous and public spirited citizens may see fit to endow the University's Special Collections research centre. Such endowments would be appropriate to ensure that the Collections continue to grow, receive conservation treatments and are properly catalogued and made accessible. At a time when Universities are being asked to generate more private funding, the cataloguing of manuscript collections would be quite properly supported by endowments.

If you wish to support the work of the University Library through a donation or gift to Special Collections, please:

  • Visit the University's Donation page.
  • Type in your gift amount. All donations over $2.00 are tax deductible in Australia.
  • Complete the rest of the information and submit the form.

Many thanks for supporting our endeavours!
