Make a gift

Join us to build the future of the Art Gallery of New South Wales

Philanthropy provides an opportunity for you to help create a vibrant cultural hub with an expanded Gallery at its heart, which will be visited and cherished by generations to come.

There are many ways to support the expansion of the Gallery. Whether you choose to give a cash donation, provide support from your business or family foundation, or make an in-kind contribution, your gift will make a difference.

Every donor has the option to be listed in the campaign honour roll, receive project updates by email and participate in an opening event. Additional recognition will accompany donations at certain levels, and it will be a privilege for us to recognise extraordinary gifts with special naming opportunities.


Ways to give

Individual gift

Donations of $2 or more to the Art Gallery of NSW (ABN 24 934 492 575) are tax-deductible for Australian tax payers.

Given the Sydney Modern Project’s target completion in 2021, multi-year pledges are welcomed.

Donations made through the Charities Aid Foundation of America, Benevity (US) or the Charities Aid Foundation UK provide donors with tax benefits in those countries. Contact the campaign team for assistance.

Matching gift

An employer matching gift program can increase the impact of your gift. For assistance in determining if your employer has one, contact the campaign team.

Gift to honour or remember

A gift in honour or memory of someone is a wonderful way to pay tribute to a special person.

Gifts of art

While artwork donations are not part of the current Sydney Modern Project capital campaign, we always welcome discussions about potential acquisitions, and a 150th-anniversary art acquisition campaign will be launched to strengthen the Gallery’s collection. We invite you to contact us for further information.

Other ways of giving

Our campaign team will be happy to provide assistance regarding other methods of giving, including:

  • gifts of securities or property, including artworks
  • gifts from foundations and trusts
  • corporate giving
