Help secure our home for the next three decades.
IPCS is many things to many people, but quite simply it would not exist without our custodianship of the premises at 78-80 Curzon Street, North Melbourne.
Established in 1863 as the Souter Johnnie Hotel, by 1996 the old pub had fallen into a state of dormancy and disrepair when it was bought at auction by Alan Richmond. Alan was a practically oriented businessman who believed in Phillip Darby and Michael Dutton’s vision for the Institute and was keen to invest in something substantial, long term and worthwhile.
Alan went on to also fund the architectural redesign and renovation of the building generously, to transform it into the place we all know and love.
Three decades on, urgent works are needed to ensure our centre can withstand increasingly unpredictable weather events and a warming climate, as well as be made accessible to people of all physical abilities. Additional basic ongoing maintenance and upkeep are necessary and expensive.
To this end, we are establishing an IPCS building fund. We aim to raise $100,000 in support of the most urgent and essential works.
Please consider donating to help us secure the home of the IPCS community and its projects for the next three decades.
