The American Friends of the National Gallery of Australia is a registered United States 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, whose mission is to foster closer ties between the United States and Australia through the visual arts.
AFNGA works to secure gifts of landmark works of art and contributions in order to support the exhibition and educational programs of public museums and galleries, and for the cultural enrichment of thousands of people who view them each year.
Each year, AFNGA gathers artists, collectors, arts professionals, philanthropists and enthusiasts for an exciting program of events centered around the visual arts.
Since 2012, AFNGA has co-sponsored the AusArt Fellowship for Australian visual arts students undertaking study or research in the United States.
AFNGA is an independent charitable organization and gifts may be made to AFNGA to achieve tax deductibility in the USA.
