Philanthropy

Since its creation by Royal Charter in 1954, gifts and legacies from Fellows and friends have helped the Australian Academy of Science to maintain a degree of financial independence.

Many of our core activities such as scientific meetings, advice to support policy development, publications, education, public awareness and outreach, international activities, awards and fellowships would not be possible without your support.

Support given through general donations is directly responsible for strengthening the Academy’s achievements. Each time you make a gift through our annual tax or special appeals, you help to make the Academy a vital, viable and visible presence in our region.

Guidelines on acceptance of funding

Digitisation of Archives

The research of Australian scientists forms the foundation on which we build our future. It’s vitally important that we capture their stories and preserve and digitise their research — but we need your help

We are deeply grateful to the following individuals and organisations for their extraordinary generosity. Thank you for supporting the Australian Academy of Science.
