The challenge remains to ensure the Anzac Memorial continues to lead and sustain remembrance of past sacrifices into the future. ‘Lest We Forget’.

We need your support.

Please consider making a financial contribution to the Memorial. Help us to honour the Anzac legacy and educate and inspire for generations to come.

Donate your time

The Anzac Memorial depends on support from the community to assist us in preserving the memory of those who have served in war through remembrance and interpretation by volunteering their time. Anyone aged 18 years or over interested in the history of the Anzac Memorial and the involvement of New South Wales citizens who served their country in war or in peace keeping activities can apply to be a volunteer.

In 1934 the RSL launched a fundraising campaign selling stars to be featured in the Memorial’s Great Dome to raise money to allow for the completion of the Memorial build. £11, 868 was raised. As we mark the 100th anniversary of the First World War, the public again has an opportunity to support NSW’s principal memorial and honour the Anzac Legacy.
