Cultural Donations

By donating visual arts and material culture to our collection, you help preserve it for future generations to enjoy, and ensures that it receives ongoing professional care from our gallery and museum staff.

Cultural Gifts Program

Yarrila Arts and Museum is proud to be a participating institution of the Australian Government’s Cultural Gifts Program.

This program enables donors to make art and cultural heritage donations to public art galleries and museums and receive a tax benefit for the market value of the gift.

The artwork must be relevant to the institution, align with our collection policy, and be appraised by two approved CGP valuers to determine a proven market price.

If you’re interested in donating an artwork or object, please fill out our donation form or contact us at We’d be happy to discuss potential priority areas for the collection.


Leave a meaningful impact by including the gallery in your will. You can choose to designate a specific amount or a portion of your estate. Your bequest can be unrestricted or directed towards a specific collection, award, educational program, or new initiative.

If you’re interested in making a bequest, please fill out our bequest form or contact us at We’d be happy to assist and discuss your vision for your legacy.
