GSV needs financial help

The Society in recent years has worked hard to place the GSV in a sustainable financial position. The focus has been on the difficult balancing act of both reducing costs and improving our service delivery and resources for members. You will have read in Ancestor about the innovations and new developments we are bringing to you through the library’s services, our research days, discussion circles, talks and seminars. 

The GSV relies on the ongoing support of our members and volunteers and ask when considering tax-deductible donations, could you please give favourable consideration to making a donation to the GSV? Your financial support is fundamental to helping us maintain the library and ongoing operations of the GSV.

Money donations

Donations of $2 or more to the Society are fully tax-deductible and can be made through the ‘Donate now’ button on the bottom of GSV homepage, by phoning the GSV Office, posting a cheque or credit card details, or simply at the reception desk when you are next visiting the library. All donations are very much appreciated.


A decision to include a bequest in your Will to the Genealogical Society of Victoria helps the society move into the future with a strong financial base. Thus enabling another generation of family historians to discover their ancestors.


Donations to the library are welcomed. Please check the library catalogue to ensure the item is not already held in the collection. Please read and complete the Donation Form which should accompany any donated items.
