Bequests are playing an increasingly important role in securing the future of arts institutions. As a not-for-profit organisation, the MCA relies on the generosity of individuals to ensure the success of its exhibition and learning programs. Your gift can also assist the Museum to build, preserve and present our collection of work by Australian artists for future generations to enjoy.
Outlined below are some of the types of bequests you may wish to consider.
The most useful type of bequest is one intended for the general purposes of the MCA as it permits the Museum to direct your gift to wherever it is most needed at the time, and therefore provide the most benefit. However, if you would prefer your bequest to be directed towards a particular area of interest such as learning programs or exhibitions, we would be delighted to discuss the options with you.
If you are considering bequeathing a work of art to the Museum, please contact the curatorial department. The Philanthropy Manager can put you in touch with the appropriate person.
