Support the MCA

In the galleries

The MCA raises 68% percent of its income from non government sources and the generosity of individuals plays a key role. This support underpins the MCA’s exhibitions and learning programs.

MCA Ambassadors

MCA Ambassadors are a dynamic group of art patrons from across Australia committed to helping the MCA achieve its potential.

Being an Ambassador is a great way to support the MCA and offers you the chance to be more involved in the life of the Museum.

Ambassadors’ annual donations support the MCA’s exhibitions and learning programs, bringing contemporary art to diverse and expanding audiences. All donations are fully tax deductible.

Ambassadors receive invitations to an exciting program of previews and special events as well as our quarterly publication Art Matters, for a special curatorial insight into the Museum. Art tours are also offered exclusively to Ambassadors.


Ambassadors are acknowledged for their generosity on the Ambassador Wall in the new MCA foyer, in Art Matters and the MCA Annual Report.

Four levels of giving

  • Visionary $25,000+ per annum
  • Innovator $10,000 – $24,999 per annum
  • Futurist $5,000 – $9,999 per annum
  • Contemporary $1,500 – $4,999 per annum

To assist with the planning of the exhibitions and learning programs, the MCA encourages you to pledge your donation for five years. All donations are fully tax deductible.
