Private support

American Friends of the National Gallery of Australia Foundation


Overview | How to support | Tax treatments | The Foundation | Bequest Circle | AFNGA | Volunteer guides

In the early 1980s L Gordon Darling AC approached a small number of prominent Americans in New York who had links and friendships with Australians. He sought their help to support and enrich the National Gallery’s collection of art. The result was the creation of the American Friends of the Australian National Gallery (AFNGA).

Today, AFNGA continues to play an important role in securing gifts of works of art for the National Collection. It is a registered charitable foundation in the US and gifts may be made to AFNGA to achieve tax deductibility in the USA.

Should you wish to make a bequest, a tax deductible donation or gift of works of art through AFNGA, please contact:
