METEOR INCORPORATED is a not-for-profit Australian organisation established under the auspices of the Australian Science Fiction Foundation but incorporated separately on legal advice in August 2007. Its public fund was endorsed by the Australian Taxation Office as a deductible gift recipient, with effect from 9th February 2010. This means that donations of $2 or more from Australian taxpayers to the Meteor Incorporated Public Fund are tax deductible — for details, please refer to the Contributions page.
The purpose of the Association is to securely preserve and manage collections of books, magazines and other memorabilia when their present owners can no longer maintain them. Its mission is to raise funds to set up a permanent science fiction institution and research collection in Australia.
The repository will be based on the great SF and fantasy collections of Australia. When sufficient funds are available, Meteor Inc plans to buy premises and set up a fully functioning library and research facility.
This will take several years to accomplish and cash donations are welcome. Regrettably, donations of memorabilia cannot be accepted at this stage. That will have to wait until the Association has the resources to look after them.
