Newcastle Art Gallery’s collection was established through the generousity and philanthropy of individuals who endeavoured to broaden the cultural life of Newcastle.
Under the Australian Government's Cultural Gifts Program the Australian Taxation Office now provides tax incentives to encourage gifts of culturally significant items from private collections to public institutions. This program has greatly enhanced the Gallery’s collection. Many of these donations are an acknowledgement of the Gallery’s past and its role in the community and have been gifted with an expectation of the Gallery’s future redevelopment.
There are several ways that you can personally support the Gallery’s activities and contribute to a project or area that is of special interest to you. These include:
- Donations of cash, property or other assets
- Making a bequest or legacy in a will
- Becoming a Member of the Foundation
- Gifting art through the Cultural Gifts Program
