Donate

The National Pioneer Women’s Hall of Fame is a not-for-profit organisation which operates on the basis of visitor entries, shop sales, membership fees, donations and government funding. We have also converted an unused part of the Old Alice Springs Gaol grounds into a secure car park which we lease to the Alice Springs Hospital.

Donations are always greatly appreciated and valued. Those of $2 or more are fully tax-deductible.

Donate Objects

We always appreciate offers of donations, from paintings, books, sculptures, manuscripts and personal papers to jewellery and ceramics. If you make a donation, you can be proud that your gift is helping develop Australia’s public cultural collections. You are also helping to preserve Australia’s cultural heritage for the benefit of present and future generations. All proposed gifts will need to approved by the National Pioneer Women’s Hall of Fame’s Acquisition Committee. Please contact the Curator or Business Manager for more information.

Donate to the Signature Quilt Campaign

The Signature Quilt is a centrepiece of the museum’s collection and has been on display continuously since 2003. This unique object is very popular with visitors, and we are committed to continuing to make it accessible to the public. However, without an appropriate display case it is beginning to perish. Expert conservators have investigated the requirements for conservation of the Quilt and provided recommendations for new lighting, sensors, display cabinet and interpretive panels explaining the conservation process for an estimated $30,000.  This investment would ensure the Quilt is protected from damage by climate (temperature and relative humidity), light, dust, insects and human interaction.

To donate to this cause you can deposit to our bank account, details below, or pay over the telephone with credit card by calling (08) 8952 9006.
