Become a SA History Guardian

The History Trust of South Australia invites you to help advance our core purposes of collecting, presenting and sharing the significant stories of our state with all South Australians, young and old. Since its establishment in 1981, the History Trust has remained committed to serving our community. Across Australia there are public, community and private agencies dedicated to operating museums, historic houses and heritage properties. The History Trust of South Australia is dedicated to the broader advancement of history. Our mission is to ‘give the past a future – now!’

Will you become a SA History Guardian who generously supports our work with a minimum $5,000 tax-deductible gift a personal act of cultural leadership?

Your decision to help us sends a signal to others that our mission is important to South Australia – and that this resonates with you.

I became a South Australian History Guardian as a proud South Australian who firmly believes in the importance of sharing our legacy locally, nationally, and internationally. Long may the History Trust’s work continue to inspire and share our achievements across time and cultures.
