Inviting you to become a Visionary

Partner with us to bring the Gallery’s landmark expansion to life

We are building a vibrant new cultural hub with significantly more space for the display and enjoyment of art, along with more opportunities for our visitors to learn, create and be inspired.

Philanthropic support for the Sydney Modern Project will help us deliver a world-class art museum that will benefit generations to come. The new building, designed by internationally recognised architects SANAA, provides close to double the current exhibition space, enabling the Gallery to show more of our outstanding art collection and host more of the best exhibitions from around the world.

Help us to build the future

By joining the Gallery’s community of donors, you will be investing in our bold vision for the future. There are many ways to support the expansion and we welcome gifts of any size. All donations are tax deductible.


We invite you to be part of this once-in-a-generation transformation as a Visionary donor, and help bring this landmark project to life. With a commitment of at least $100,000, Visionary donors will be prominently recognised in the new building. Please contact the campaign team if you wish to participate in this program. With the project’s expected completion in 2022, multi-year pledges are welcomed.

Key supporters

Donors of $10,000 and above will be recognised on the Honour Board on display at the entrance to the new building. You will also receive invitations to key events, including the ground-breaking ceremony and an exciting program of previews. You can make a one-off gift online or contact the campaign team to make a multi-year pledge.

Other giving

Donations of any value will give you an insider’s view through special communications and events. We encourage you to contact the campaign team to discuss options for support. You can make a one-off gift of any amount online here.

The expansion will transform the Gallery into an internationally recognised cultural destination.

The architects, SANAA, have done a wonderful job in designing the new building. The oil tank is such an amazing space and it will be a highlight of the Sydney Modern experience. So too will be seeing Indigenous art upfront in the expanded Gallery and more opportunities to display our collection.
