VCA Foundation Fund
Help us to prepare and develop creatives and artists for the world’s stage.
Philanthropic support of our students and staff contributes to their ability to adapt to Australia’s creative future and lead with vibrancy. Gifts and grants from our loyal supporters nurture the creativity and passion of some of our best and brightest students. Help Australia’s next generation of artists fulfil their potential in the heart of Melbourne's Arts Precinct and increase the accessibility of courses to a more diverse student population.
If you would like to discuss philanthropic opportunities at the Faculty of Fine Arts and Music, please contact Peter Barron, Development Manager for the Faculty of Fine Arts and Music.
You can help students by supporting one of our existing funds.
Many Australian artists choose film and television to convey their uniquely personal stories through narrative, documentary or animation productions. The biggest barrier to success for these artists is opportunity. This fund aims to support two key groups: final year students completing graduation films and alumni seeking grants for original screen content projects. You can help visual storytellers from all backgrounds succeed in their chosen field.
On Monday 27 August 2018, we celebrated our good friend Lionel Gell's 90th birthday. Lionel has been an extraordinarily generous supporter of the Faculty in recent years, with 2018 marking the 10th anniversary of the Lionel Gell Foundation Scholarships, which have assisted more than 90 students in their studies.
Scholarships can transform a student’s experience and opportunities for study. We welcome the chance to work with donors to create new scholarships and awards to benefit our students through annual gifts, endowments and bequests.
