As you are probably aware, the last twelve months at the Ballaarat Mechanics’ Institute have been extremely exciting, but not without challenges, like many other periods in the history of the BMI.

In reality, despite all of our combined efforts, the BMI faces rising insurance costs, increased repair and maintenance costs, increased utilities and competition for funds as our supporters also personally face these issues. We also understand our responsibility to future generations to maintain our high standard of programs, to build on our community engagement and contribute to the overall visitor experience to Ballarat. As an organisation, we are doing all that we can to enlist this support through fundraising, friend-raising, sponsorships, partnerships, network building and by continuing to reach out to trusts and foundations, both locally and further afield. We are also always examining the business model and exploring new options incorporating fresh strategy and new connections, which is vital to remain relevant in this growing region.

We often find ourselves asking for support at the annual appeal or just simply to advocate for your Institute. This year is no different. Last year we were so fortunate to raise a sizeable amount from our urgent appeal, and we would ask you at this time to consider donating again to allow us to plan for the calendar year ahead with more certainty and creativity. Maybe consider it a birthday gift to the BMI which of course will give back to you and so many others in the years to come.

Thank you so much for taking the time to consider our request and thank you for being part of the intellectual, cultural and social development of our city in this our 165th year.
