T   he Art Gallery of South Australia is Adelaide’s splendid
    treasure house, holding one of Australia’s finest, largest and
oldest public art collections.
   The Art Gallery of South Australia Foundation was established
in 1981 to raise funds to support the growth of the Gallery’s
collections. Ninety percent of the Gallery’s collection has
been acquired through the generosity of private and corporate
donors and many works of art acquired through the Foundation
remain the highlights of the collections today. The role of the Art
Gallery Foundation is to continue this tradition, by encouraging
financial support through membership, donations, and gifts of
works of art, to keep the Gallery at the forefront of Australian
and international art. The Art Gallery of South Australia is a
wonderful and invaluable cultural resource, offering unique
experiences for its members. Specially designed lectures, tours,
exhibitions and other events make membership of the
Art Gallery Foundation a rewarding experience.
   Gifts of significant works of art can also be made through the
Foundation. In appreciation of donors’ generosity, the Foundation
offers appropriate acknowledgment and membership
for all contributions. Gifts are tax deductible under the Federal
Government’s Cultural Gifts Program.
  Bequests to the Foundation create a legacy for generations to
help ensure the Gallery’s future. Bequests can be varied in nature:
cash, works of art or real property are some common examples.
Gifts, donations and bequests can be made to honour people or
organisations. Please contact the Foundation if you would like to
receive a copy of the Gallery’s publication on bequests.
