The National Trust is the premier heritage preservation organisation in Victoria. It relies on donations, charitable grants and membership subscriptions for its income. The cost of the conservation and maintenance of its large portfolio of historic properties is far in excess of its ability to pay.
How will the funds be used?
All funds raised in the Annual Appeal will be put towards meeting the National Trust's most urgent restoration challenges at its heritage sites in Victoria. For 2016/17 these include assisting with vital conservation work to our extensive and nationally significant costume collection; helping with the restoration of Sir Daryl Lindsay’s wonderful studio at Mulberry Hill; supporting the conservation work on the barque Polly Woodside; and aiding the interior stabilisation of Abercrombie House in South Melbourne, part of the nationally significant collection of 19th-century portable iron houses.
