Become a supporter

The National Rock Garden is seeking donors and benefactors to assist us in achieving our substantial goals. Please contact us if you would like to know more about such opportunities and the associated benefits.

The NRG Steering Committee has adopted the following hierarchy of financial support:

  • Patron Donors: $5M or more
  • Principal Donors: $1M to $5M
  • Major Donors: $100K to $1M
  • Benefactors: $10K to $100K
  • Contributors: less than $10K

All donors will be recognised on the NRG website and in relevant annual reports. These sponsorship categories apply equally to donations received from government agencies, corporate organisations, individuals or as bequests from a deceased estate.

The NRG Steering Committee also encourages individuals or organisations to make a targeted donation to support the acquisition, transportation and preparation of an individual rock specimen. Please note that all rocks will need to be approved by the Steering Committee. Such rock supporters will be named on the identifying plaque attached to the rock and acknowledged in greater detail on the NRG web site.
