How you can help
The Royal Society of NSW is the oldest learned institution in Australia - but our focus is on the future.
The Society relies on having a vibrant membership and on voluntary contributions to support its work in advancing knowledge and encouraging research in science, art, literature and philosophy. Your support allows us to continue to influence, to lead and contribute to developing Australia's future.
By far the best way to support the Society is to join it and to become actively involved in its affairs. Membership is open to any person interested in advancing knowledge in science, art, literature and philosophy. For more information on joining the Society, visit the Membership page.
