The Western Australian Explorers’ Diaries Project Inc. is approved by the Australian Taxation Office as a Deductible Gift Recipient. This entitles Sponsors to claim the total value of any grant for taxation purposes.

Sponsorship can take many forms apart from cash. For instance, typing of manuscripts is one of our biggest bottlenecks. It is often within the scope of a business to be able to allocate unused capacity to this task.

The benefits for Sponsors are also numerous and don’t need to be merely constrained to a logo or a Foreword in the volume or advertising on this website. We are keen to talk to businesses who would like to receive a quantity of volumes in the Western Australian Exploration series as part of a Sponsorship Package.

Sponsorship of a volume of Western Australian Exploration can enhance a company’s corporate profile. Bequests can ensure the memory of the donor endures.

If you wish to assist in preserving Western Australia’s exploration heritage please contact the Project Coordinator.
