Support the RMIT Design Archives

Donate to RMIT Design Archives' appeal and help preserve, share and celebrate our vital and unique collection.

The RMIT Design Archives is a nationally significant and unique collection of Australian and Victorian design. In these increasingly digital times, having online access to the collections is critical to research, and teaching and learning.  

What if we could offer you online access to our unique design collections?
With your help, we can.

By donating today, you will make increased access to the RMIT Design Archives collections possible. Every donation will help us digitise, preserve and publish our records online for national and international scholars and students to access and enjoy.  

By donating to digitise the RMIT Design Archives collections, you will also give our wider community unprecedented access to explore Melbourne's vibrant design history.  

In addition to digitising the collections, gifts of the following amounts can accomplish: 

    $250 - support ongoing public programming 

    $500 - enable preservation of a significant collection 

    $1,000 - ensure digitisation of architectural drawings for use on the Archives database, social media, website & promotional print material

    $2,000 - support the digital conversion of analogue audio-visual collections 

    $10,000 - fund the publication of the RMIT Design Archives Journal

Please donate to our tax time appeal by 30 June to ensure that scholars, designers and community members can enjoy the Design Archives for generations to come. All donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.
