Schaeffer initially collected 19th-century Australian paintings, but was entranced by the 1984 exhibition The Pre-Raphaelites at Tate Britain. His initial art purchases in the 1970s were Australian paintings by Rupert Bunny, E. Phillips Fox and John Russell. Three paintings from Schaeffer’s collection are in the permanent collection of the Leighton House Museum in Holland Park, West London. The restoration of the gilded ceiling of the Narcissus Hall at Leighton House was also supported by Schaeffer. Schaeffer’s art collection held 200 pieces at its peak, but was greatly diminished by business debts and the financial effects of his divorce.

Schaeffer was a part-owner of the British Movietone Archive. Schaeffer was a board member of the National Gallery of Australia Foundation, as well as a board member and Life Governor of the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
