The Abbotsford Convent Foundation (the ACF) is seeking your support to make the Abbotsford Convent all it can be now and for future generations. The Convent has swiftly emerged as a premier arts and cultural precinct set on a significant heritage site in Melbourne. It is a welcoming and lively destination that is free to enter and already welcomes over 13,000 visitors each week. With your help, the Convent can continue to grow as a dynamic hub of arts, culture, community and learning. It is people like you, who believe in this precious community asset and grasp its full potential, who have so far enabled its success and will continue to make it happen.
During the month of June 2013, the ACF is running a special environmentally friendly fund raising campaign.. Buying bike racks, improving the watering systems and better managing building temperatures are all simple but effective ways for the Convent to help the environment and with your support, they are all things we can do now. As the Convent does not receive recurrent government funding, your help is always important.
Please indicate below what you'd prefer your donation to go towards:
All donations over $2 made to the Abbotsford Convent Foundation Arts Trust are tax deductible.
