In 1934 the RSL launched a fundraising campaign selling stars for 2s/6 in the Memorial’s Great Dome to raise money to finish building the Memorial. The people of NSW raised £11, 868. 

The public has another opportunity to support NSW’s Principal War Memorial and honour the Anzac Legacy. The online Constellation of Honour and Memory campaign is raising funds for future exhibitions and education programs conducted by the Anzac Memorial Learning Team.
