Financial donations to Special Collections will directly support our activities and ensure the legacy of these unique items. All donations over $2 are tax deductible.

Cultural Gifts Program

The Cultural Gifts Program offers tax incentives to encourage people to donate cultural items to Australian public collections.
Special Collections welcomes offers of archival and non-archival materials that are considered either rare, unique, or fragile and not commercially available to enhance areas associated to the University’s learning, teaching and research programs. These materials may include bibliographic items, ephemera, memorabilia, objects, manuscripts and digital items.

Gifts are only accepted if they fall within the Special Collections Policy and if the value exceeds the cost of the valuers' fees and the administrative costs.

For further information, contact Sharon Becarria, Special Collections Officer.
