Realise your potential at yourtown

our art union

yourtown is one of the largest and longest running charitable Art Unions in Australia. For more than 60 years our Prize Draws have helped raise funds to support children and young people. From sewing machines to horses and now luxury homes, we've come a long way since our first Prize Draw in 1961 – where two shillings bought you a chance to win one of four Holden cars valued at $1,000 each. Today, our multimillion-dollar Prize Homes offer luxurious lifestyles in locations like the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast.

Many supporters don’t realise yourtown buys the properties that become our stunning luxury prize homes. While the costs of running a luxury art union are higher than other fundraising activities, many of our services would not exist without these vital funds. yourtown Art Unions contributed $42m back into the Australian community by funding yourtown services last year.
