The Gallery Foundation is the Grafton Regional Gallery's umbrella philanthropic organisation for the Gallery’s benefactor groups and funds.


It invests capital from donations, bequests and funds raised, and uses the income to purchase artworks for the collection and develop the facilities and infrastructure at the gallery.


The Foundation seeks to drive philanthropic activities that will result in sustainable partnerships with individuals, businesses and government. 


The Foundation is operated through The Gallery Foundation Ltd (ABN 68 112 564 566), a public company limited by guarantee, which acts as trustee for The Gallery Foundation Trust (ABN 23 225 656 813) under which a fund has been established.  Donations to The Gallery Foundation Trust Fund are tax deductible.
