About The Copland Foundation
The Copland Foundation was established from the legacy of the late Alexander Ewart Copland. Throughout his life Alex was an avid collector, with a special interest in historic houses and their contents. When Alex died, several significant pieces from his collection were gifted to museums and other public collections while the bulk of the estate was sold. The Copland Foundation was established with the proceeds of these sales.
The Copland Foundation supports individuals and institutions within Australia operating in fields that were important to Alex Copland. These fields include conservation, historic house museums, fine and decorative art museums, science museums and libraries. As well as providing grants for suitable projects within these fields, the Alex Copland Attingham Scholarship and the Nina Stanton Attingham Scholarships enable Australians to travel to the United Kingdom each year and attend courses of study run by The Attingham Trust. More information is available on specific pages within this website.
The Copland Foundation can be contacted via email or at PO Box 173, Ashburton, Victoria, 3147.
