How to donate

The Queensland Library Foundation is a not-for-profit company, Limited by Guarantee, registered under the Corporations Act 2001, and holds Deductible Gift Recipient status (DGR Items 1 and 4).

Preserve a vital piece of Queensland’s history

Help us to preserve and digitise the Central Queensland Territorial Separation League petition, 1892-1893 — a 33 metres long petition to Queen Victoria that was signed by 4000 women in support of Central Queensland separating from Brisbane. Too fragile to be made accessible to the public, the scroll is sitting in a box in our ‘rare and restricted’ repository. Funding will allow necessary conservation work. The scroll is a testament to women’s determination to engage in civic life before they had the right to vote and deserves public viewing.

Give voice to LGBTQIA+ history

Help us fund The Rainbow Research Fellowship. Your donation will support researchers to uncover and articulate important stories of Queensland’s LGBTQIA+ community. The Fellowship will be launched as part of the prestigious Queensland Memory Awards. Fellows will be able to access and draw knowledge from State Library’s Queensland LGBTIQ+ collection among other resources. The Fellowship will help to ensure a fair and full representation of the LGBTQIA+ community in Queensland’s documented history.
