Masterpieces for Melbourne
On behalf of the Council of Trustees of the National Gallery of Victoria and the Board of the NGV Foundation, we warmly thank and acknowledge the individual benefactors, foundations and corporations who generously supported the Masterpieces for Melbourne campaign.
The campaign, which concluded in 2012, was supported by approximately two thousand people who made gifts both large and small. This generosity helps ensure that the National Gallery of Victoria’s collection remains one of the world’s great encyclopaedic art collections for generations to come.
We also wish to acknowledge the Council of Trustees of the NGV, members of the NGV Foundation Board and members of the Campaign Committee whose commitment, leadership and significant contributions have ensured the campaign’s success.
