Cultural Gifts Program

The Gallery is endorsed to accept gifts through the Australian Government’s Cultural Gifts Program. The program allows donors to donate artworks to public art galleries to receive a tax benefit which may be apportioned over a five year period. The Program requires that the artwork must be of relevance to the institution, fit within the gallery’s collection policy, and must be valued by two approved valuers at proven market prices.

There are now over 1000 artworks in the Gallery’s Collection. Many are gifts and donations.
