Our Mission / Objective

The Australian War Memorial is Australia’s preeminent site of commemoration.   It is our purpose to commemorate the sacrifice of Australians who have died in war and on operations. Our mission is to help people remember, interpret and understand the Australian experience of war and its enduring impact on our society.

Our Services

The Australian War Memorial combines a shrine, a world-class museum, and an extensive archive.

Often described as the spiritual heart of the nation, it holds a special place in the hearts and minds of many Australians.  There is at least one commemoration ceremony every day at the Australian War Memorial including the national Anzac Day and Remembrance Day ceremonies.

Our collection provides a wealth of information to help you research and find your connection to the brave men and women who served in Australia’s armed forces as well as provide a deeper understanding of the Australia experience of war.

Our Beneficiaries

The Australian War Memorial plays a crucial role in enhancing and enriching our learning and understanding of who we are as a nation.

The Memorial was built upon the passion of people determined to honour the contribution of our service men and women. Today, the support of individuals and businesses who share a belief in this purpose is more important than ever.

Donations will help us to plan for the future and continually meet the needs and expectations of our defence and veteran community and the Australian public. It allows us to introduce additional programs, explore exciting new ways to educate and inspire visitors and encourage all Australians to reflect on the service and sacrifice of those who serve in our defence forces. 

Projects in Progress

The Australian War Memorial requires financial contributions in five key areas to make possible a range of projects, programs and activities. 

Exhibitions and Displays: The Memorial has a vast collection which is exhibited, displayed online, and underpins historical research and interpretation, nationally and internationally. With increased financial support, further innovation can be achieved through access to and interpretation of the Memorial’s collection.

 Education and Public Programs: The Australian War Memorial is a valuable educational resource for schools across Australia. We conduct a range of programs at the Memorial and in classrooms that are interactive and draw on real objects and fascinating stories.

Commemoration: There is at least one ceremony every day at the Australian War Memorial requiring significant staffing, infrastructure and equipment. This commemorative activity is perhaps the most important role we undertake. Our ceremonies are deeply moving and often transformational, particularly for those who have undertaken military service.

Digital engagement: Nothing tells the story of the Australian experience of war better than our extensive digitised collection of letters, diaries, photographs, film and objects.   Funding in this area will help us to reach new audiences and enhance the experience of onsite visitors through engaging and interactive content.

Collection Development and Acquisition: The Memorial’s collection includes art, records, artefacts and objects, vehicles and military heraldry, aircraft and weaponry.  To continue to tell the story of Australians at war and on operations, continued development and enhancement of the collection is essential.

How to help us

Wills and Bequests

Bequests support the creation of long-term financial security for the Australian War Memorial, allowing us to plan ahead and confidently pursue our vision for the benefit of all Australians now and in the future.

General Donations

By making a financial donation to the Australian War Memorial you are helping us to tell their stories for generations to come.

Your generous donation will contribute to keeping the spirit alive for future generations by preserving and commemorating the Australian experience of war.

Other support

Along with bequests and general donations, the Memorial has a number of additional support options: 

The Giving Campaign is a new fundraising initiative for businesses and individuals looking to make a significant impact on the future of the Memorial. Donations to the campaign will allow the Memorial to look beyond core activities and explore exciting new ways to educate and inspire visitors.

Corporate Partnerships are for like-minded organisations who want to be part of the Memorial, and honour those who serve our nation. Partners are offered a range of opportunities and benefits that are individually tailored for mutual benefit.

Donating items to the Memorial relating to the Australian experience of war and peacekeeping – such as photographs, letters, and diaries – helps us tell an important part of our national story. Unfortunately, the Memorial is unable to accept all items into the National Collection. A guide is available for those interested in donating material to the Memorial, which includes a checklist and Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs). 

Work with us

The Australian War Memorial is an exciting and innovative place to work; it stands at the forefront of modern museology and research into Australia’s military history.

The Memorial’s world-class exhibitions are housed in the nation’s most revered commemorative site, set in beautifully landscaped grounds at the foot of Mount Ainslie.

Please visit the employment section of our website to learn of current vacancies.

Volunteer with us

The Australian War Memorial has nearly 300 volunteers actively contributing to its mission to assist Australians to remember, interpret and understand the Australian experience of war and its enduring impact on Australian society.

Volunteers perform in a wide variety of roles at the Memorial, both at the front-of-house and working behind the scenes. Our volunteers come from diverse backgrounds including students, retirees, parents, grandparents and many have served or have links to the military. Others simply enjoy interacting with visitors and sharing the stories of our nation.

The Memorial’s volunteer programs draw much interest from the local Canberra community. Recruitment processes are conducted throughout the year as and when volunteers are required for specific areas.

Volunteers receive appropriate training relevant to their work, unless they have been recruited because of a special skill they possess. Initial training periods vary from 2-3 afternoon sessions, up to 6-months for the voluntary guides. Training is provided by expert Memorial staff, such as curators, historians and educators, together with a mixture of guest speakers with expertise in special areas.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer, please visit our website.

For any general volunteer enquiries, you can get in touch via email or call (02) 6243 4234.
