The Annual General Meetings of The Eryldene Foundation Limited and The Eryldene Trust (a company limited by guarantee) were held on Monday, 30th May 2016 at 17 McIntosh Street, Gordon.
Eryldene Historic House and Garden receives NO on-going government funding and relies on the support of the community to maintain the house and gardens for future generations. Your support is vital for Eryldene’s future.
Eryldene celebrated its Centenary in 2014/2015 and the Eryldene Foundation has launched an appeal to secure the long term future of this historically and architecturally important house and garden
Eryldene is owned and managed by an independent Trust and receives no on-going government funding. It has relied on community support to maintain the house and garden since its formation in 1979. However with ever increasing maintenance costs Eryldene needs an adequate capital fund which can support the needs of a one hundred year old house and its extensive garden. Without such a fund the long term future of Eryldene is uncertain. With this in mind the Foundation is seeking to raise $2 million dollars.
We invite you to become a valued supporter of the Eryldene Centenary Fund. Please take a few minutes to read our Centenary Appeal document which can be accessed in PDF format. This explains the national and international importance of Eryldene, the need for proper funding to be in place and how the Foundation is managed.
It is vital that our appeal succeeds so that Eryldene remains as an important community asset. We want Eryldene to be open for people now and into the future to enjoy and appreciate its fine architecture, beautiful garden and an era of Sydney life now all but gone.
