Small Contributions, Big Impact: Join us in empowering Victoria's public galleries

As cost-of-living challenges grow, the benefits of free cultural experiences become more important every day. As we saw during the pandemic and following bushfires and floods, Victoria’s public galleries create a sense of community and connection, reducing social isolation and improving health and wellbeing. As our communities grapple with the impact of a cost-of-living crisis, it's crucial that we come together to ensure the continued vitality of our public galleries.

With your help, we can make a significant difference. Our "Small Contributions, Big Impact" campaign aims to harness the collective power of our community by inviting individuals like you to contribute whatever amount you can, knowing that every donation helps PGAV build the capacity of public galleries across the state.

By donating to PGAV, you're upskilling the creatives who work in our public galleries, growing diverse audiences for their exhibitions and programs, and helping us advocate for accessible, enriching experiences for all Victorians.

Every tax-deductible donation, be that $10, $20 or $200, will have a meaningful impact. All donations over $2 are tax deductible.

Together, we can ensure that our public galleries remain vibrant hubs of creativity and inspiration for generations to come.
