Preserve our State’s heritage, support the Foundation by making a donation to the Foundation or one of our conservation project appeals.

The South Australian Heritage Foundation is a new way to ensure that our state’s precious heritage is cared for into the future.

The Foundation is operated by the National Trust of South Australia. It works in partnership with individuals and corporate, government and community organisations to raise funds and undertake projects to protect and preserve South Australia’s built, cultural and natural heritage.

The Foundation also works with education and training organisations to develop the next generation of skilled heritage conservation professionals, preserving and passing on the trade and artisan skills needed to conserve our heritage for future South Australians.
