Thank you to the generous people and organisations that donated items for our new office at the La Mama Courthouse. Thank you to all who so generously offered their valuable time, professional advice and support in the period after the La Mama Fire.
La Mama is extremely grateful for financial relief packages supplied by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria, the Australia Council for the Arts, City of Melbourne and from Heritage Victoria.

Finally we also feel it important to mark that we have just passed the Ten-Year anniversary of our largest fundraising effort to date – the enormous contribution from our community in 2008 to Save La Mama by purchasing our building on Faraday Street. Thank you, we will never forget this long-lasting act of generosity.
