The St Columbans Mission Society has provided, on very generous terms, office space in Melbourne for CHART work. We are most grateful for this expression of support and wish to thank the former Columban’s Director, Fr Noel Connolly, the present Director Fr Gary Walker and the Columban Mission Centre’s CEO, Mr Michael Mooney for the offer and welcome into their premises.

See here for details of the opening of the office space on 01 December 2011.

Donation received
In May 2012 Chart received a donation of $20,000 for its work. The donor provided the gift through a board member and wishes to remain anonymous. The CHART Board will decide at its next meeting how to use this most generous and timely contribution.

In 2000 Heather and Neil Barrett donated $10,000 towards collecting Timor archival materials and assisting in Timor archival developments. At the time, Neil and Heather were owners of Video Education Australasia Pty Ltd.

This donation continues to help fund various parts of CHART work.

Mercy Sisters, Ballarat, Victoria
We are very grateful for the April 2012 decision of Communities South B and South C of the Mercy Sisters in Victoria to cover the 2012 rental costs of our office space in Melbourne.

The Institute of Sisters of Mercy of Australia and Papua New Guinea is engaged in a range of community development actions in Timor-Leste through Mercy Works.

Valma Waddingham Estate

The late Valma Waddingham’s (1928-2005) personal legacy to CHART archivist/manager John Waddingham has assisted with travel and other day-to-day costs for several years. The value of this legacy for CHART work is incalculable.

———————————

Margaret Barlow

The late Margaret Barlow (1936-2010) bequeathed $6,000 to John Waddingham for his Timor work. The bulk of this bequest has been used to purchase computer and scanning equipment to initiate CHART’s digitisation of archival materials for access in Timor-Leste.

Andrew McNaughtan Estate

The executors of the Estate of the late Andrew McNaughtan (1953-2003), Nigel Stewart and Don McNaughtan, invited CHART to process Andrew’s extensive Timor documentary and video archive. The executors covered the travel and accomodation costs for two visits to Sydney during 2006 to complete this work.

Pat Walsh

A complete range of office furniture was provided by Pat Walsh, a CHART Board member, for use in the CHART office. Pat was also instrumental in the Columban Mission Society’s offer of office accomodation in Melbourne in 2011.

University of Melbourne Archives

A generous donation of new and second-hand archives boxes by UMA in the early years of CHART’s existence was a great help. Thanks especially to former staff members Jane Ellen and Michael Piggot for advice and encouragement at that time. CHART is currently working with UMA in a joint project to digitise the Timor papers of the late David Scott.

———————————

Anonymous Institutions

Several institutions in Melbourne, Perth Sydney and Canberra have anonymously donated new and second-hand archive boxes to assist CHART storage and management of privately-held Timor archival materials.
