Help us create a vibrant new cultural hub

Our vision for the future of the Art Gallery of New South Wales is bold, and our expansion can only reach its full potential through philanthropic support.

Along with the NSW Government’s $244 million funding for our SANAA-designed new building, the Art Gallery’s capital campaign has surpassed its fundraising target of $100 million, to support its construction. We are grateful to our generous major donors and supporters for supporting this once-in-a-generation project. Private fundraising for the Sydney Modern Project is being led by a dedicated campaign committee under the chairmanship of Dr Mark Nelson.

As we embark upon the next phase of our dynamic story, we are continuing to seek support for the new building and landscape design features, as well as for the revitalisation of our much-loved historic gallery building.  We are also seeking support for major site-specific art commissions and acquisitions and a range of inspiring programs and activities, to position the new expanded Art Gallery as a beacon for creativity, excellence, knowledge and inclusion.  

We invite you to join our community of donors and help us make our cherished public institution one of the world’s leading art museums.
