By bequesting artworks, financial assistance or property to the Queensland Art Gallery | Gallery of Modern Art (QAGOMA), you can directly contribute to the expansion and development of the Gallery's Collection and programs, ensuring that Queenslanders of all ages will benefit from your generosity now and in the future.

The Foundation aims to build lasting relationships with its donors. If you are considering making a bequest, we invite you to discuss your intentions with us so we can thank you personally. This will ensure that your specific wishes are understood and will allow you to enjoy the rewards of giving now. All inquiries regarding bequests are treated with the utmost confidentiality.

Bequests are managed by the QAGOMA Foundation. When a gift is bequeathed to the Gallery, half the amount specified is honoured as an immediate gift, including the corresponding level of Foundation membership. By making a bequest of $8000 or more, you will be entitled to join the Foundation and enjoy a unique relationship with the Gallery.

Your solicitor can provide further assistance. If you have an existing Will and would like to update it to include a bequest, the Gallery can provide you with a codicil form to amend, rather than replace, a previously executed Will.

To include the Gallery in your Will, the following wording may be used:

“I bequeath {insert details of cash contribution, description of items or portion of residuary estate} to the Queensland Art Gallery Board of Trustees.”
