Support us

For over forty years, Murdoch University Art Collection has been enriched through generous artwork gifts, financial donations & bequests.


We sincerely thank our donors for their pivotal support, which assists us in building a collection of national significance and ensures it remains an integral part of our students, staff and visitor’s campus experience.

A lasting contribution can be made via an artwork gift, financial donation or bequest, either through the Federal Government’s Cultural Gifts Program or to the University Foundation.

Murdoch University is a registered donor recipient of the Federal Government’s Cultural Gifts Program. This 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).

For further information please contact Art Collection Curator Mark Stewart.
