They say giving is more rewarding than receiving.

A gift does not have to be large to have a large impact.

At the heart of Penrith Regional Gallery is our desire to continue to present a program of artistic excellence and create an accessible environment for everyone.  The Gallery is a not-for-profit local community asset. Most of what we offer is free of charge, and we receive modest funding support. Our income can’t cover the true cost of putting on our exhibitions and running all our programs. With a little bit of help from you we can do so much more as we work to keep our programs accessible to all.

Penrith Regional Gallery is part of Penrith Performing & Visual Arts, a not for profit organisation. The generosity of individuals plays a vital role in our ability to achieve our goals. The support we receive underpins our exhibition and learning programs providing support for our community and Australian art.

Your generosity will help support a dynamic arts and cultural landscape for Penrith. We appreciate your support.

The Penrith Performing & Visual Arts Ltd Fund is a tax deductible fund listed on the Register of Cultural Organisations under Subdivision 30-B of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997.

All donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.

All donations of $200 and more are acknowledged on our website, foyer screens and in our annual season brochure.

A DGR Receipt will be emailed to you by our Gallery team after your donation has been received and processed.

Gifts and Bequests

The Gallery and its collection began as a bequest in 1978; and continues to build with gifts, donations and bequests of works of art on a regular basis.

The generosity of donors is a crucial factor in the Gallery’s continual development of the permanent collection as a dynamic resource to bring quality contemporary works by renowned artists to our audience. These works (above) from the Paris Opera Project series by Bill Henson were donated through the Australian Government’s Cultural Gifts Program by the Hawker Family Trust in 2016.
