If you would like to gift a financial legacy to the Gallery, your bequest will go to the Christchurch Art Gallery Foundation. The Foundation are building an endowment fund to help Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū acquire works for the city’s collection.
You may choose to join the Foundation as a TOGETHER partner, or give a bequest independently of this programme.
If you’d like to bequeath a work of art from your personal collection, our Gallery director and curators would be happy to visit you and help identify works that may fill gaps in the collection.
This incredible work – Doris Lusk’s Rocks at Oaro (1966, watercolour) – was a generous gift from David and Faith Thomas in 2022.
If you would like to talk to us about a bequest, a gift or a special donation to the Gallery please contact Jacq Mehrtens on firstname.lastname@example.org
