The Foundation of Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery

The Members' Lounge

The Foundation of the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery is the main fundraising body for the museum and is comprised of community-minded members who support TMAG through giving and philanthropy.

Established in the early 1980s, the Foundation has raised more than six million dollars for the TMAG and these funds have been used to support acquisitions and programs.

By becoming a member of the Foundation, you can ensure this innovative collaboration between the arts and industry continues to thrive.

As a member, you will have the opportunity to target personal contributions towards the areas of the Tasmanian State Collection that you are passionate about.
