With the doors to Walsh Street largely closed since March 2020 and our revenue streams restricted, it has been a challenging couple of years for the Foundation. Like many other organisations, we have had to make tough decisions to ensure our financial sustainability and cover the costs of maintaining Boyd’s iconic Heritage Listed residence.

We are incredibly grateful for the generosity shown by our Boyd Circle, partners, Amplify supporters and volunteers, who provided a sturdy footing for us to reopen and re-establish capacity. Right now, we’re working hard to connect with the community, amplify voices and champion Boyd’s ethos that ‘design matters’. To do this, we need your help!

However big or small, your donation will go towards caring for Walsh Street and enabling us to deliver talks, exhibitions, publishing, symposiums, tours, open days and competitions that, just like Boyd, provoke fearless dialogue on Australian architecture and design.

Donate to protect:

Your donation will help us cover the cost of day to day maintenance, keep our courtyard green and plan for ongoing repairs, including impending plumbing works and the vital conservation of Boyd’s iconic sweeping suspension roof. Help us protect and care for Walsh Street.

Donate to explore:

Walsh Street, a lively centre of knowledge and inspiration, regularly welcomes students, design leaders and the broader community for tours, talks and film screenings. Our 3D tours, exhibitions and open days provide access and explore icons of design and contemporary contexts. Your donation will help us educate the next generation of designers and increase public awareness through a broad scope of educative public programs.

Donate to amplify:

Like Boyd, the Robin Boyd Foundation unites design professions and advocates for design’s vital role in improving the world around us. Your support will enable us to build a groundswell of interest in critical contemporary issues for the built environment and design. Funds raised will support advocacy projects that amplify new ideas and the many voices contributing to Australia designing a better tomorrow.
