Australian Directors' Guild   

Donations and Bequests

Support the ADG to Support Directors

The Australian Directors' Guild is dedicated to supporting and celebrating the creative voices of directors across Australia. As we embark on our ambitious plan for 2024-2026, we need your support to achieve our goals and ensure directors can thrive.

Why Your Donation Matters

The ADG receives no ongoing core funding and cash-flow is tight, counting on roughly a third member fees, a third events and sponsorship and a third grants and partnerships. We value every cent, but our current funding model leaves us under-resourced compared to our peers. The ADG ought to stand shoulder to shoulder with Screen Producers Australia (SPA) and the Australian Writers' Guild (AWG), to ensure we: 

- Advocate effectively for directors' rights.

- Provide comprehensive professional development.

- Offer critical industrial relations support.

Directors deserve the same level of support as other industry professionals. To ensure this, we need financial certainty. Supporting the ADG through donations, sponsorships, and partnerships will empower directors and strengthen our industry.

Our Plan

Your generous donation will directly contribute to:

- Advocacy: Legal and industrial relations support for our members. Development of a suite of best-practice contracts and updated rate cards.

- Policy: Amplifying our voice in policy discussions, advocating for a strong industry and for the rights and interests of directors.

- Professional Development: Expanding our training programs and resources, supporting directors at all stages of their careers. Funding our mentorship programs, career development initiatives, and placement opportunities. 

- Cultural Impact: Celebrating directors directing. Promoting diversity and inclusion within the industry. Championing excellence, historical and contemporary.

- Sustainability: Enabling us to provide vital services and support to our members.

How to Donate

Your support is invaluable, and donations of any size make a significant impact. Here’s how you can contribute:

- Online: Make a secure donation using the form below.


- Bank Transfer: Contact us for bank transfer details.

- Mail: Send a cheque payable to Australian Directors' Guild to our office at Suite 28/330-37 Wattle St Ultimo NSW 2007.

Make a Lasting Impact

Leaving a bequest to the Australian Directors' Guild (ADG) is a powerful way to support the future of our industry and ensure the continued advocacy for directors' rights, fair treatment, and creative excellence. By including the ADG in your will, you help safeguard the strength and unity of our community, allowing us to develop vital protections and essential resources for generations to come. Your legacy gift will empower directors, enhance their working conditions, and foster a thriving, equitable industry. Your generosity would have a lasting impact.
