The PaRC narratives and document repository have been established using philanthropic funds. For administrative reasons tax deductibility for the AIPR Trust Fund – Education expired in 2000. The Fund’s bank account can still receive donations (BSB 064-448, Account 10327037) which will be warmly welcomed, but donors will not be able to claim a tax deduction. However, Charles Sturt University has a fund that enjoys tax deductibility.
While the basic architecture of the library has been completed, there is a large potential for enlarging the collections using sponsored funds. For example, a sponsor may choose to pay for the cost of digitising historical documents in their sphere of interest that have fallen out of public view. Local governments may support establishment of a page for their parks and recreation activities. The professional papers of eminent park personnel of mature age or who have passed away can be digitised using funds from their families.
Any sponsor or philanthropist who would like to contribute to this inspiring project is invited to make contact via firstname.lastname@example.org.
