The National Gallery of Australia Foundation raises funds and secures gifts of works of art to support the vision of the Gallery and to develop the national art collection for all Australians.

The principal objectives of the Foundation are:

  • to promote, maintain and develop the national collection of works of art owned by the National Gallery of Australia
  • to promote, maintain and develop the National Gallery of Australia as a cultural institution
  • to improve access to the national collection for all Australians through travelling exhibitions, publications, education, public programs and online access.

Foundation donors support the Gallery through tax deductible donations, gifts, pledges and bequests towards general programs or areas of special interest. By joining the Foundation you will become further involved in the life of the National Gallery of Australia and you will experience firsthand how your benefaction contributes to the development of the visual arts in Australia.
