Throughout Bendigo Art Gallery’s 125 years it has successfully positioned itself as the most vibrant and progressive gallery within regional Australia. Boasting a collection of 19th 20th and 21st century art alongside a diverse and challenging temporary exhibition program Bendigo Art Gallery is undoubtedly poised for greater things.
With this in mind the Board of Management launched the Bendigo Art Gallery Foundation in February 2008. A Foundation specifically for the Gallery enables a number of special initiatives and projects to be pursued that would not otherwise be possible within the normal day to day operation of this important cultural institution.
All donations are tax deductible.
Please refer to the Foundation Donation Form below for further information or contact the Gallery.
Bendigo Art Gallery invites you to become a stakeholder in the Gallery’s future by purchasing a virtual brick in the new extension as a symbol of your involvement and support. Bendigo Art Gallery will dedicate the wall facing Rosalind Park to the community to acknowledge individual contributions to the current redevelopment.
