The Foundation  
Established in 2000, the Australian National Maritime Foundation is the fundraising arm of the National Maritime Museum. The Foundation holds funds to acquire major objects for the National Maritime Collection, to conserve our collection and to provide support for the museum and its research, educational and arts programs. 

Although supported by the Commonwealth Government, the National Maritime Museum is required to raise close to 40% of its total expenditure each year. Donations to the Foundation enable us to achieve our goal of building a capital fund allowing the museum to continue to grow.
