Individual Membership Members make a contribution to Culture Bank from $10 per month or an upfront payment of $120 per year. Becoming a Culture Bank member is very easy.

Just fill in the form located here.

Once you become an ‘Individual’ Member of Culture Bank Wollongong, we will in effect salute you! You will be one of the growing numbers of locals, who recognise the importance of living in a vibrant culturally active community. Together we have already been making a real difference, and we will continue to grow from strength to strength. Our plan is to have at least 2000 members, which will mean an excess of $240,000 to give to inspiring cultural projects each year. Imagine that!

  • You choose how much you want to be involved. You will receive invitations to decision dinners and to the events that Culture Bank has financially supported.
  • You will receive monthly statements for tax-deductible purposes.
  • You can participate in deciding which local cultural projects receive our support by attending lively Together we share a great meal and discuss the funding applications, and vote on the projects that are submitted.
  • All members are invited via email and Facebook to attend the Decision Dinners (approximately 3 per year) and a new group of 9 members takes part on each occasion.
Please note: Memberships and payments can be cancelled at any time. However, our memberships are not refundable.



“The [Culture Bank] process is so much easier [than government funding. Lots of people have good ideas, creative ideas, but the main reason they don’t turn into reality is usually money, unfortunately.”
