Supporting the Art Collection through Donations, Gifts and Bequests

Murdoch University Art Collection is a nationally significant collection consisting of close to 2000 fine examples of Australian contemporary art. This important cultural asset has been considerably enhanced through generous gifts from our friends and alumni. This support ensures the Art Collection remains an integral part of our students’ learning experience and enables our unique collection to assist in teaching students across disciplines and to inspire and enhance the understanding and benefits of contemporary art amongst our broader community.

A lasting contribution can be made via a bequest or financial donation either through the Cultural Gifts Program or to the University Foundation. Murdoch University is a registered donor recipient of the Federal Government’s Cultural Gifts Program. The program encourages the gifting of significant cultural items to public art galleries, museums, libraries and approved collections by offering donors a tax deduction for the market value of the gift(s).
