Help Us Grow!
Annual Appeal

Last year, donations enabled us to rebuild our front stone wall – a remnant of the site’s post-colonial history as the sunken rose garden of Prineyah estate. The heritage-listed landscape at Walsh Street comprises intentionally retained fabric and vegetation with modern additions.

Our landscaping plan, generously designed by Amanda Oliver Gardens, features a white flowering palette favoured by Robin and a mix of low-maintenance and hardy native Australian and Japanese plants.

You can help us grow in 2024 – donate a plant to fill our front garden today! With your support, we will continue to protect and care for Walsh Street.

We are excited to announce a unique opportunity for you to double the impact of your support!⁠

Every donation made to the Robin Boyd Foundation’s Help Us Grow Annual Appeal before 30 June 2024 will be matched dollar for dollar up to $10,000 by one of our generous supporters. ⁠

That’s 2 plants for the price of 1!⁠

If you would like to make a donation over $1,000 or for an alternative amount, thank you! We can receive it by cheque or direct deposit using our donation form.

To make arrangements, or if you would like to discuss your gift, please email Josephine Briginshaw, Engagement Manager. Or simply, download, complete and return our donation form by post or email

Donations to the Robin Boyd Foundation of $2 and over are tax-deductible.
Your support will be acknowledged on our Supporters page.

Why do we need your help?

The Robin Boyd Foundation does not receive government funding. We rely on the support of our donors, Boyd Circle, partners, Friends, and program attendees to care for Walsh Street and its archive, which have outstanding cultural and heritage value.

Your tax-deductible donation to the Help Us Grow Annual Appeal will also help cover the cost of day-to-day maintenance, keep our garden green, conserve Boyd’s innovative tension roof, and plan vital repairs.

All support received contributes to activating our iconic residence with programming that, like Boyd, provokes dialogue on Australian architecture and design. In the past year, our Design Matters talks, symposiums, exhibitions, competitions, 3D tours, open days, competitions, and DADo film screenings have amplified the voices and ideas of over 150 students, emerging professionals, historians, academics, cultural leaders and design icons.

However big or small, your donation will make a difference.
