Donate to Nutcote

Donations are key to securing the future of May Gibbs' Nutcote. Find out how you can help

People support May Gibbs’ Nutcote for many reasons; because they loved May’s stories when they were a child and wish to help to celebrate her life and works, because they would like to help preserve May’s legacy for future generations, or because they wish to contribute to the cultural life of the Australian nation. 

Whatever the reason, we rely on the generosity of people like you.

Your donation will help us to do the things that we love doing, welcoming you to this magical place, sharing our love of May Gibbs and her extensive work, and preserving the historical harbourside home and studio she created, the ‘home of the Gumnut Babies’.

Nutcote is a registered charity and all donations over $2 are tax deductable.
