Areas to support

We invite you to direct your annual donation to the area that is the most important to you.


Enable AGWA to develop and preserve Western Australia’s State Art Collection. AGWA’s collection is continually developing with new acquisitions and commissions, offering insight into who we are today and who we aspire to be. Your contribution will also strengthen underrepresented areas within the AGWA Collection and enable us to commission new works by contemporary artists.

Donations of works of art can be made to the AGWA Collection. Please contact AGWA’s Foundation team for more information.

Gifts of works of art accepted by the Gallery are also tax deductible under the Federal Government's Cultural Gifts Program.

Learning, Social Impact and Public Programs

Support AGWA to deliver programs that aim to break down barriers, create inclusive communities and cultivate the next generation of creative thinkers. Audience engagement at AGWA and online plays an essential role in deepening and broadening our visitor’s experiences, both within the Gallery and beyond.

Exhibition Development

Support all aspects of an exhibition at AGWA, from artwork logistics, new commissions, accompanying publications, public programs, and access initiatives. AGWA brings works of art from around Australia and the world, showcasing defining artists, periods, and collections, drawing on the rich diversity artists to inspire the community of Western Australia.


Create a legacy in written form through books, essays, and accessible publications. Authored by Western Australian arts writers and academics, publications allow for the dissemination of arts thinking and scholarly conversation, throughout Australia and the rest of the world.

Wherever the need is greatest

Make an immediate impact at AGWA by donating towards the Gallery’s priority area.
