Thank you for your support

Following the 2013 launch of The Enlightening campaign to raise capital for science education, outreach and advocacy, the Academy has continued to work towards securing its future and independence as a leading voice for science and scientific excellence in Australia and beyond. The appointment of Bea Brickhill as Philanthropy Manager has brought the direction of the campaign in-house at the Academy, with consulting firm Xponential Philanthropy still providing strategic advice and support.

The support of the Fellowship as Ambassadors for the Academy is invaluable in this campaign. The Academy is now moving into the next stages of building and developing strong relationships with corporates, individuals and foundations, and Fellows have been very generous with their time and resources.
