Support the humanities

As the world grows increasingly interconnected and complex, the humanities empower us to think and act creatively and critically, to reason, to ask questions and to solve problems.

By supporting the Academy, you’ll be investing in Australia’s brightest thinkers dedicated to understanding our world and imagining a better future for all.

Make a donation

As an independent, charitable and not-for-profit organisation, we rely on the generosity of our donors and partners to ensure we can continue to champion the unique role the humanities plays in understanding the past, explaining the world we live in, and imagining and shaping the future.

Your tax-deductible gift will be used where the need is greatest across our activities, including:

  • supporting early and mid-career researchers through grants and awards
  • ensuring national decision makers have access to the best cultural, creative and ethical expertise to inform policy development, and
  • creating platforms for respectful debate and inspired thinking from the humanities and broader cultural sector on issues of national and global importance.

For more substantial gifts, we would be delighted to work with you to establish a new prize, medal, grant or lecture named in your honour.

We are registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC). We also have Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status.

Bequests: make a lasting impact

You may wish to consider including the Academy in your Will. Bequests have a lasting impact on the work of the Academy and the humanities. We can work with you to develop a new fund, award, medal or prize that carries on your legacy.
