Since its creation by Royal Charter in 1954, gifts and legacies from Fellows and friends have helped the Academy to maintain a degree of financial independence. Many of our core activities such as scientific meetings, advice to support policy development, publications, science education, public awareness and outreach, and awards and fellowships would not be possible without this long-term support. It is critical to achieving our strategic objectives.
We are deeply grateful to the following individuals and organisations for their extraordinary generosity. Our Academy Pillars have, over time, contributed an outstanding level of support to the Australian Academy of Science.
