The Art Gallery of Western Australia Foundation is a tax-deductible gift recipient under the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997. Donations of $2.00 or more are tax deductible. Gifts of works of art are also tax deductible under the Federal Government's Cultural Gifts Program.



We understand that writing your will is an extremely personal matter, and naturally, some people will prefer not to discuss it with those outside of their immediate family.  A bequest will allow you and your family to make a significant and lasting contribution to the Art Gallery of Western Australia.

Bequests can take the form of:

  • a specific asset, such as a work of art
  • a set amount of funds as a gift, or
  • a percentage of your estate.
