Donate now to our Keep it Green : Re:vive appeal!

We’re thrilled to have re-opened our gates after another long winter lockdown—but now we need your support. With the Convent closed to the public for 305 days since the pandemic began, the last two years have been the most challenging in our history.

Without visitor income, the high increased costs to provide a COVIDSafe environment have been felt sharply by the Abbotsford Convent Foundation—especially when combined with the ongoing costs to protect and maintain this precious place.

We’re aiming to raise $50,000 by 31 December to support the Convent through this next chapter of recovery. Your support will help the Convent recalibrate and revive.
