For more than 150 years the National Gallery of Victoria has relied on the generosity of the community to build the NGV Collection that we share and enjoy today.
This encyclopaedic collection of more than 70,000 works of art from around the world not only reflects our past and present, but also influences our future. Through the NGV, the people of Victoria have inherited what is undoubtedly the finest art collection in Australia and we need your help to maintain its legacy and to extend the Gallery’s relevance into the future.
We are also working hard to embrace future generations. Encouraging children to engage with the NGV and share a richer gallery experience is as important for their development as it is for the NGV’s longevity as a cultural institution in the community.
You can play an important role in our mission by supporting our educational projects and exciting children’s programs.Your support is vital to securing the NGV’s role as an art museum of international standing. I warmly invite you to make a donation to the NGV. All donations to the NGV are acknowledged through the NGV Foundation and those who give $20,000 or more are acknowledged as members of the NGV Foundation. Gifts of $2 or more to the NGV are tax deductible. Your help will ensure we can continue to develop the Collection and enrich the lives of future generations. Thank you for your support.
