Arthur and Yvonne Boyd's gift of the Bundanon properties is truly a gift that keeps on giving. You can support Bundanon Trust in a number of ways. Whether you decide to make a donation or bequest, become a sponsor or volunteer your time you are investing in Bundanon’s future and helping us grow.
Real generosity towards the future lies in giving all to the present.- Albert Camus
Bundanon was established on philanthropy when artist Arthur Boyd and his wife Yvonne gifted the Bundanon property and their collection to the Australian people in 1993.
As a not-for-profit organisation your corporate or personal contribution goes wholly to support our art museum, artists in residence, education programs and concerts and events.
We want to make sure that the thousands of school children and hundreds of artists who stay on Bundanon's properties every year can keep coming - regardless of their financial circumstances. All our programs rely on the generous support of our individual donors.
Donations of any amount are greatly appreciated and all donations of $2 or more qualify for a tax deduction.
You can donate any amount using the Donate Now button below.

Philanthropy provides an opportunity for you to help create a world-class arts and tourism destination celebrating the arts, Indigenous culture, education and the environment, which will be become a magnet in the Shoalhaven for generations to come.

There are many ways to support the expansion of Bundanon. Whether you choose to give a cash donation, provide support from your business or family foundation, or make an in-kind contribution, your gift will make a difference.
Every donor has the option to be listed in the campaign honour roll, receive project updates by email and participate in an opening event. Additional recognition will accompany donations at certain levels, and it will be a privilege for us to recognise extraordinary gifts with special naming opportunities.

...the spirit of generosity of the place is overwhelming.- Moruya High School, Adopt A School beneficiaries
Bundanon Trust offers residential opportunities to schools with students who would normally be unable to participate due to economic, social or geographic disadvantage. Bundanon gives priority to remote and national partnership schools and those with significant Indigenous enrolment. Private donors are able to directly support this program.
Bundanon Trust welcomes gifts of works of art. Donors may be entitled to a tax deduction for the market value of the gift under the Australian Government's Cultural Gifts Program.
The generosity of donors is greatly appreciated. However, we can only accept gifts of artworks that are compatible with our collection policy and which are intended for display to the public. The proposed gift must be approved by Bundanon's CEO and Board. If the gift is accepted by Bundanon, appropriate recognition is offered.
If you are considering donating an artwork, please send an image of the work, together with the name of the artist, the title of the work, its date and provenance to:
Collections and Exhibitions Manager, Bundanon Trust, PO Box 3343, NORTH NOWRA NSW 2541 or email Collections
To make a donation by phone, contact Deborah Ely on (02) 4422 2100 or email Donations

Making a bequest is an incredibly generous and meaningful way to contribute to the long term future of Bundanon.
Leaving a bequest means that you have the use of your funds or property during your lifetime, and leave part or all of your money or property to Bundanon after your death.
You may choose to leave a particular asset or a specified sum of money, or you can leave a percentage of your total estate, or a percentage of the residue of your estate, which means that you can ensure your family and friends are provided for as well as benefitting Bundanon.
You may choose to leave your bequest freely - 'no strings attached' - so that Bundanon can apply the money to the area of most need. It is also possible to leave a bequest with a specification that it is used for a particular purpose - for example, to support a special program.
If you would like to enquire about making a bequest, please contact Deborah Ely on (02) 4422 2100 or email Bequests
