Donations and Bequests

The Art Gallery of Western Australia has historically benefited from generous supporters who have enabled the Gallery to continue to grow and care for the State Art Collection in addition to being able to offer a diverse range of exciting events and exhibitions each year.

If you would like to support AGWA in this way please get in touch so that we can acknowledge your generous support.

All gifts made to the Gallery are administered by the Art Gallery of Western Australia Foundation. AGWA Foundation, founded in 1989, has had an extraordinary impact on the Gallery, facilitating more than 80% of all acquisitions in recent years as well as supporting our visitor experiences through outstanding public programming and exhibitions, and the critical conservation of works of art.

Bequests

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

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.

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, shares or real estate.

We encourage donors to seek professional advice from a solicitor or financial adviser when planning a bequest.

We would like to be able to acknowledge our supporters who confirm their intention to leave a bequest to AGWA. In this way we can appropriately recognise your generosity, ensure we fully understand your motivations and intentions and provide a unique opportunity to develop a closer relationship with AGWA in your lifetime. We therefore encourage you to please advise us of your bequest by contacting our Foundation Office.

If you have already made a Will and you wish to leave a gift, you may be able to make a simple change by adding a codicil, which includes the Art Gallery of Western Australia as a beneficiary.

If you would like to discuss the possibility of leaving a bequest to AGWA, please contact our Foundation Office via email foundation@artgallery.wa.gov.au or call +61 8 9492 6685.

Please be assured that all enquiries will be treated with complete confidentiality.
