Bequests

Through a bequest, of any size, you can make a significant and lasting tribute that will develop and strengthen the Geelong Gallery’s collection and public programs into the future.

A bequest to the Geelong Gallery is a precious gift and most generous way of making a lasting contribution to the Gallery. Such a legacy will enable present and future generations to draw inspiration and have transformative experiences from this much-loved institution.

Making a bequest in your Will is a straightforward process. After considering your family and loved ones, you can make a real and positive difference to Greater Geelong’s community and cultural landscape.

The Gallery maintains a permanent record of its benefactors and will acknowledge your generosity in a manner you feel appropriate or anonymously. We will always respect your wishes.
