A bequest is a special way for you to make a significant and lasting contribution to your State Art Gallery.

Make a lasting contribution and safeguard AGWA for future generations. With a gift to AGWA in your will, your story becomes part of our story, playing an important role in the lasting legacy of AGWA.

If your life has been enriched by your experiences at AGWA, leaving the Gallery a planned gift in your will ensures future generations can also experience the positive impacts of art and culture.

Tailored for you

Bequests can take the form of:

• The residue of your estate (after taking care of your family and other gifts and costs)
• A percentage of the residue
• A set amount of funds as a gift
• A specific asset such as a work of art, a collection of works, shares or real estate.
