The Anzac Foundation was created over 20 years ago to help build a secure and independent financial base for the Australian War Memorial. All gifts (unless otherwise specified) are invested strategically, providing capital growth and ongoing income to strengthen the Memorial’s financial position.

The Foundation plays an important role in raising funds for the Memorial, by managing the bequest program and providing another channel to donate to the Memorial.

The Australian War Memorial Anzac Foundation has been endorsed under the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997 as an income tax exempt charitable entity and deductible gift recipient.

You can find out more about our bequest program on the bequests page. Or if you donate through the Foundation, please contact or call (02) 6263 6609.
