We thank and give recognition to all those who have donated and contributed to the C.E.W. Bean Foundation

We value and appreciate every single person who chooses to donate to us. Whether at one of our Functions or Events, or throughout the year, your philanthropy and gift is highly valued.

We have received wonderful support from ordinary people, highly prominent Australians, former war correspondents, photographers and artists, working journalists, students, school children, Australian Defence Force personnel and veterans. Most recently in mid-2020 we received financial support from a Donor for the website you are now on, as well as updates to our social media presence on Facebook and Twitter.

For all the support we receive from all Australians and around the world, we are truly grateful.

Please contact us to discuss the best way to contribute.

We are registered with the Australian Charities and Not For Profits Commission (ACNC). You can check our filings, history and status here:
