Trusts & Foundations

The Museum of Contemporary Art Australia welcomes donations from trusts and foundations, including family foundations and Private Ancillary Funds.

Support from foundations allows the MCA to undertake projects that extend the scope of its work, increasing access to the Museum and bringing contemporary art to wider audiences. Projects include learning programs that facilitate lifelong learning for all, especially those with disabilities or disadvantage, and touring and research projects.

Some foundations choose to direct their donation to a specific project at the MCA. Examples include generationext a highly successful free youth initiative for teenagers supported by The Balnaves Foundation, and Good Vibrations, the development and regional tour of a multisensory transportable art access project for people with specific needs, which received support from Perpetual trusts and foundations.

Another option for foundations is to become supporters of MCA exhibitions and publications. Major exhibition supporters have included the Turnbull Foundation.

Family foundations may also become involved in the Museum through the Ambassador Program, the MCA’s annual giving program. Ambassadors receive invitations to an exciting program of previews and special events and there are a range of levels of support. All donations are tax deductible.
