Cultural Gifts Program

The Gallery @ BACC is an eligible participant in the Australian Government’s Cultural Gifts Program. This program encourages Australians to donate items of cultural significance from private collections to public art galleries, museums, libraries and archives.

The Program is administered by the Ministry for the Arts in accordance with the gift provisions of the income tax law. For more information you can visit the Program's website.

As a donor, you will be eligible for the following tax incentives under the Program:

  • The market value of the gift is fully tax deductible, with some exceptions.
  • You can elect to spread the deduction over up to five income years.
  • Gifts are exempt from capital gains tax.
  • You may also claim a tax deduction for the cost of valuations obtained specifically for this Program.

Please note, gifts bequeathed under a will or made by executors of deceased estates are not tax deductible and do not qualify for the Program.

If you make a donation, you can be proud that your gift is helping develop Australia's public cultural collections. You are also helping to preserve Australia's cultural heritage for the benefit of present and future generations.

If you require further information about making a Cultural Gift Donation to The Gallery @ BACC, please contact our Gallery Supervisor.
