As a not-for-profit registered charity, the Academy deeply appreciates the support of generous benefactors whose donations have assisted the Academy’s vital work to promote understanding of how technological science, engineering and innovation can help to improve the common good for all Australians.
Your donation or bequest can be applied to purposes that are consistent with the Academy’s purpose, to promote in Australia the application of scientific and engineering knowledge to practical purpose. For example, STELR— a national, in-curriculum program that engages students in active learning and directly supports teachers to enhance their skills and capacity to teach science and maths via enquiry based learning.
Donations to the general work of the Academy are also immensely valuable, allowing your money to be directed to areas of strategic need.
By considering the Academy in your Will, you will make a lasting contribution to assist the Academy to promote and strengthen Technological Sciences, Engineering and Innovation to contribute to Australia’s social, economic and environmental wellbeing. Substantial gifts may be associated in some conspicuous manner with the name of the benefactor.
