Other ways to support us
Buy and listen to music by Douglas Lilburn and other New Zealand composers. The SOUNZ website is a great place to explore music by New Zealand composers.
From time to time, we undertake special projects to assist our fundraising. You could buy the book we have published of Lilburn's two talks, A Search for Tradition & A Search for a Language. This makes a wonderful gift for anyone interested in art, music or New Zealand culture. Find out more and order.
The Lilburn Residence Trust is extremely grateful to receive annual funding from Wellington City Council which contributes towards the cost of rates and insurance. We have also received special project funding from: New Zealand Lottery Grants Board Environment and Heritage Fund, the New Zealand Community Trust, Wellington City Council Built Heritage Incentive Fund, the Lilburn Trust and the Stout Trust. In 2014 we received a grant from the Lottery Grants Board to develop a conservation plan for the house.
