The capital campaign

Build the future

The Sydney Modern Project represents an unsurpassed public–private partnership, with the NSW Government providing indispensable funding for construction. However, this project can only reach its full potential through philanthropy, and the capital campaign to support the Gallery’s expansion is seeking to raise $100 million in private funding.

While the campaign’s official launch is scheduled for later this year, we invite you to consider joining us at this initial leadership phase, during which gifts of any size are welcome.

As a donor you will have an insider’s view from the very beginning, through special communications and events such as behind-the-scenes tours, program and other engagement opportunities.

A 150th-anniversary acquisitions campaign will be held concurrently to strengthen the Gallery’s collection in time for the completion of the expansion. There are also opportunities to support endowments, programs and other activities.

Together we will preserve the past and build for the future, creating an iconic cultural hub for the arts in Sydney and NSW.
