The MTC Foundation provides a mechanism to receive, consolidate and distribute all donations to the Company.

As a registered not-for-profit organisation, all donors making a gift of $2 or more receive a tax deductible receipt.

The MTC Foundation is overseen by a Board of dedicated and supportive leaders and is chaired by businesswoman Jane Hansen. The Foundation Board ensures that Donor provided funds are being appropriately managed, invested and utilised by MTC. This governance and oversight ensures exact fulfilment of Donors’ intentions.

The MTC Foundation was established in 2015 and was officially launched in February 2016 with the announcement of a $1 million donation from The Hansen Little Foundation, to establish the MTC General Endowment Fund (GEF).

A donation to the Foundation is a gift for Melbourne’s future and demonstrates a Donors’ vision and leadership in ensuring the future of Arts in Australia.
