SUPPORT THE CONSERVATION OF MANNING CLARK HOUSE AND ITS CULTURAL ACTIVITIES

Preserving the fabric and feel of 11 Tasmania Circle is vital to the work of Manning Clark House as well as recognising the Heritage-listed values of the house itself. We invite you to assist in this work. You might choose to support a specific project (for example, the restoration of one of several artworks by major Australian figures, or maintaining the kitchen garden Dymphna developed as an expression of commitment to sustainability) or the priorities identified by us in consultation with heritage experts.  In association with the National Trust, donations to the Heritage Fund are tax deductible.

We also seek your assistance in promoting various approved cultural activities in whatever medium including literature, performing and visual arts, together with the preservation of movable cultural heritage such as the collections in the house.  You may choose to support a specific project or cultural field (for example, supporting publications or other work in cultural fields, or preservation work on the many historically significant images in Professor Clark’s study and elsewhere in the house).  Donations to the Manning Clark House Cultural Fund are tax-deductible on the basis of our registration as a cultural organisation with the Register of Cultural Organisations.To make tax-deductible donations to either or both of these Funds, please click here

If you wish to contact us to discuss how you might wish to help us, please send us an email at the following address:  manningclarkhse@gmail.com , and we will get back to you.

In addition, or alternatively, you may wish to donate to help keep the association operating, both as the organiser of cultural and other activities and of heritage conservation measures for the site and collections within it.  We need your help to meet the high property management costs of a heritage-listed site such as rates, utilities and maintenance.  The best way to do this is by direct transfer to the MCH general account, as shown on the Donation Form below, and completing and returning the Form as shown on it.

Any receipted donation of $2.00 or above to any of the Funds/account will be treated as a benefaction and will entitle the benefactor and family to one one-year complimentary individual or couple membership of the association, as well as invitations as honoured guests to special events.

If you agree to donate in any way, we will  recognise your contribution on our website and in our programs, as a vital  dimension of the ways in which ‘friends’ of Manning Clark House engage with us and enrich our work.

For the MCH Heritage Conservation Appeal Fund:

Manning Clark House is a Heritage listed property, recognising its significance as a house designed by the eminent architect, Robin Boyd, and its association with one of Australia’s most influential historians. Largely unaltered since construction in 1953, the house retains the distinctive characteristics of Boyd’s modernist practice, adapted to the relatively modest brief of providing a home for Manning and Dymphna Clark’s family and reflecting the social and cultural contexts of their lives in the formative phases of Canberra’s development.

Now managed as a cultural centre, the house retains the intimacy of a family home, conveying the vitality of those who lived in it.

Preserving these qualities is a challenge. Manning Clark House Inc (MCHI), an ACT incorporated association, functions on a purely voluntary basis. We welcome donations that will assist us in maintaining the house, its gardens and grounds, conserving the extensive library, artworks and furnishings that evoke the  Clarks, their networks, contributions and personalities, and ensuring that the property retains the capacity to educate and delight its visitors.

Any receipted donation of $200 or above will be treated as a benefaction and will entitle the benefactor and family to one complimentary individual or couple membership of the association, as well as invitations as honoured guests to special events. In association with the National Trust, donations to the Heritage Fund are tax deductible.

If you agree to donate in any way, we will  recognise your contribution on our website and in our programs, as a vital  dimension of the ways in which ‘friends’ of Manning Clark House engage with us and enrich our work.
