Gifts of works of art

Enrich and expand Australian public collections, ensuring all Australians benefit

 

Tangible personal property, such as paintings, sculpture, design objects, drawings, photography, prints, film, artifacts, archival material, media, textiles, architecture, performance art, and illustrated books, may be donated to AFNGA during your lifetime or by bequest.

Donors of tangible personal property held long-term and accepted by AFNGA are potentially entitled to claim an immediate income-tax charitable deduction.

Works of art is one form of tangible personal property. If you are considering donating a work of art to AFNGA, you should first contact us to talk about your proposed gift as AFNGA must give consideration to such gifts before we can accept them. AFNGA seeks property that reflects institutional quality standards in the areas of art and objects in which we seek to acquire.
