Donations

As we turn 165 years old we must admire the effort and work of those before us, who have striven to ensure that we are in a position to meet the responsibilities of caretakers for this remarkable facility, but we need your help.

As you are probably aware, the last twelve months at the Ballaarat Mechanics’ Institute have been extremely exciting, but not without challenges, like many other periods in the history of the BMI.

In reality, despite all of our combined efforts, the BMI faces rising insurance costs, increased repair and maintenance costs, increased utilities and competition for funds as our supporters also personally face these issues.

Your gift will be tax-deductible this financial year if you make it before June 30, with a receipt immediately issued via email. You may also donate to the BMI via cheque or bank transfer if you wish. Please reply to this email for details.

We thank you for your support – Paula Nicholson

The BMI holds deductible gift recipient status with the ACNC – Ballarat Mechanics Institute Library and Building Development and Restoration Fund, ABN 53 004 034 575.
