The contribution of our generous donors enables ACCA to continue its important work supporting artists and their vision. 

Government funding to ACCA contributes less than 40% towards its annual costs.  ACCA needs to raise over 60% of its annual income in order to produce it’s exhibition and public programs, commission artists and deliver education services to thousands of children.  That's a lot to raise each year!

Your donation will be directed towards ACCA’s Artistic Program, supporting new commissions by outstanding Australian artists, helping bring artworks by leading international contemporary artists to ACCA and assisting our popular public and education programs. 

All donations to ACCA over $2 are tax deductible and offer the donor a personal connection to ACCA, including invitations to Private Views, special events and opportunities to meet with exhibiting artists.
