Museums Australia (Victoria) is an independent, not-for-profit incorporated association. We receive 75% of our operating budget through core and project funding from Creative Victoria, and 25% from sponsorship, philanthropic revenue, participant fees, and earned income.
- Core operational funding is provided on a triennial basis by Creative Victoria.
- Victorian Collections is a project developed in partnership by Museums Australia (Victoria) and Museums Victoria. The project is currently being funded by the Veterans Branch of the Department of Premier and Cabinet and the Victorian Cultural Network (Culture Victoria) through Creative Victoria.
In addition, The R E Ross Trust is generously providing three-year funding to support the regional focus of our Museum Accreditation Program as well as the development of a museum mentorship network.
