For over forty years, the Murdoch University Art Collection has been enriched through generous artwork gifts, financial donations and 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 visitors’ campus experience.

A lasting contribution can be made via an artwork gift, financial donation or bequest – either directly to the university  or through the Australian Government’s Cultural Gifts Program. The Cultural Gifts 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.
