The generous gift that William Johnston left to the people of Victoria on his death in 1986 is now vulnerable.
Despite the opulent room settings, exhibitions and programs that visitors enjoy, William Johnston’s endowment needs supplementary funding to guarantee the continuation and development of the museum and its programs. In addition to this critical shortfall, important and urgent works must be made to maintain and protect the irreplaceable legacy of Fairhall exhibition house and garden.
You can support The Johnston Collection and the work we do by making a donation to our OPENING DOORS fundraising appeal, by leaving a bequest, becoming a corporate sponsor, a member of The Friends, or a volunteer.
Your generosity will enable The Johnston Collection to continue to share its collection and activities with visitors from around the world well into the future.
The Johnston Collection is a gift to the people of Victoria by William Johnston (1911-1986). It is administered as an independent not-for-profit museum by The W R Johnston Trust.
The W R 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.
