Help build the Gallery’s collection

Your donation can make all the difference

Being a member and making a donation is a wonderful way to support the Gallery’s collections, exhibitions and programs.

One of the most important contributions our members make is by helping to purchase artworks for the Gallery’s collection. In our 65-plus years we’ve provided funds for more than 230 works of art.

Every dollar counts, all donations of $2 or more are fully tax-deductible. Donations of $200 or more entitle you to be part of the Collection Circle Acquisition Program.
