Who we are

The Australian Museum Foundation is an independent organisation which raises funds to support the Australian Museum's scientific research, exhibitions, education programs and natural history and cultural collections.

Why we need your help

The Australian Museum is an invaluable treasure for all Australians to enjoy and learn from. We are privileged to hold the most extensive collection of natural history and cultural artefacts in the country.

We are only partially funded by State Government so we rely on the generosity of individuals like you to ensure we can continue our vital scientific, research and education work and care for the collections we hold in trust for the people of NSW.

How you can help

Even the smallest donation helps to support the work we do. Your donation to the Australian Museum Foundation will go towards projects such as:
  • Delivery of education programs to students in regional and remote areas
  • Working with Indigenous and Pacific communities to enrich their connection to culture and expand our cultural collections
  • Scientific research and fellowships
  • Restoration of important and historic Museum spaces such as The Long Gallery
  • Digitising our collections to improve online access
  • Acquisition of significant objects for the Museum's collections
