Promotion of philanthropy

Support the promotion of philanthropy fund to help the Gallery’s fundraising

As the Roman playwright Plautus noted, ‘You must spend money to make money’. But first you need to get the money to spend!

In the case of fundraising for the Gallery, many things are needed to help us reach our aims, which include:

  • building the collection through targeted art acquisitions
  • supporting vital activities such as curatorial projects, conservation, learning and participation, and the library and archive
  • creating an inspiring 21st-century art museum through the Sydney Modern Project

Special events need to be held to reach out to potential supporters and thank our benefactors. In terms of basic practicalities, a database needs to be maintained for correspondence, invitations and donations, and communication materials need to be produced and distributed.
