You can support The Johnston Collection and the important work we do by making a donation to our OPENING DOORS fundraising appeal.

The OPENING DOORS Fundraising Appeal was launched in May 2015 by Australian fashion designer Akira Isogawa, with the aim of raising funds to secure the museum for future generations.

Funds raised through the OPENING DOORS appeal enable us to:

  • Continue to undertake maintenance and revitalisation of our historic house museum, Fairhall
  • Support innovative, educational, culturally rich and diverse programming
  • Increase access to the Collection and engage with the broader community

Your donation to the OPENING DOORS Fundraising Appeal will help us to provide extraordinary art and experiences and to preserve William Johnston’s legacy into the future.

The WR Johnston Trust is endorsed by the Commissioner of Taxation as a Deductible Gift Recipient organisation under Division 30 of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997.

All gifts made of $2 and more, other than those made via a testamentary gift, are fully tax deductible.
