The Newcastle Art Gallery Foundation is the Gallery’s major acquisition fund.
The generosity of Newcastle Art Gallery’s benefactors has ensured that the Gallery has one of the most significant art collections in Australia.
Benefactors include Dr Roland Pope, Anne von Bertouch OAM, William Bowmore AO, OBE, Ann Lewis AO, Margaret Olley AC, Les Renfrew, Commonwealth Bank, OneSteel and PWCS.
By joining the Foundation as a benefactor you ensure the Gallery acquires works of art, hosts special events and continues to enrich our community as a vital part of Newcastle’s cultural life.
For as little as $500, you can become a Foundation member.
The Foundation welcomes individual and corporate benefaction. Membership is cumulative, enabling benefactors to gain higher status through ongoing donations and the gifting of works of art.
In recognition of membership, you will:
- be invited to have your name listed on the Foundation Honour Board*
- receive invitations to view public and private collections
- be invited to special events in Newcastle and beyond
- receive Foundation newsletters
Please consider leaving a gift to the Newcastle Art Gallery Foundation in your will.
*Donors can remain anonymous. The Foundation always respects the privacy of donors, benefactors and members.
