Your donation helps The Friends to continue with their support of special selected projects in the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne.
Please support the 2017 Annual Appeal by donating to the Friends’ Trust Fund, which has tax deductibility status as a Public Ancillary Fund. Income from the Trust Fund is used to support the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria, Melbourne Gardens, and the National Herbarium of Victoria.
The Staff Scholarship Scheme, established in 2007, has been a very exciting element of the Friends’ support for the Gardens and the Herbarium, with over 26 scholarships awarded.
Your donation will assist the Friends to increase the support given for large and small projects in the future.
Our current project is the refurbishment of the Visitors’ Centre at Observatory Gate.
Past projects include the Fern Gully Boardwalk, the Helen McLellan Research Grant and the purchase of artwork for the State Botanical Collection from the Friends’ The Art of Botanical Illustration exhibition.
