The art of giving

Artspace Mackay is registered with the Australian Taxation Office as a Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) ensuring all donations to Artspace Mackay valued over $2 are tax deductible.


Artspace Mackay seeks support through donations, individual and corporate partnerships, grants and bequests with a view to raise funds for investment into the Mackay community. This valuable support funds ongoing educational community art programs, workshops, exhibitions and cultural events, as well as the acquisition of artworks for Mackay Regional Council’s Art Collection which is stored and cared for at Artspace Mackay.


Artspace Mackay welcomes offers of artwork for the collection. Please contact Artspace Mackay Gallery Director, Tracey Heathwood 07 4961 9722 to discuss your wishes in this regard as all artwork donations must comply with Mackay Regional Council's current Art Collection Policy. If the donation meets policy requirements and identified collection priority areas, gallery staff may also assist in arranging a valuation of the work, and assembling your submission to claim a tax deduction through the Australian government’s Cultural Gifts program.


Making a bequest is a very special way to make a lasting contribution to art and culture in your community. If you are planning to make a bequest to the gallery, we invite you to discuss your intentions with us. Artspace Mackay Gallery Director and staff can meet with you confidentially and work with you and your solicitor to enable your contribution through your estate. If you are considering the option of bequeathing Artspace Mackay a gift of artwork, please discuss this directly with the Gallery Director, as all art acquisitions must satisfy Mackay Regional Council's current Art Collection Policy.

Please call 07 4961 9722 to discuss your donation with gallery staff or email for further enquiries.
