Get involved at the Grace Cossington Smith Gallery


There are many ways to support the Grace Cossington Smith Gallery. This art gallery has been made possible through the generosity of donors from within our community, including current parents and Old Girls. The Gallery is also supported by significant artists and collectors who have generously either donated or loaned artworks for us all to enjoy. We look forward to working with new friends as we continue to strengthen our collections and programs.

The Grace Cossington Smith Gallery is endorsed  as a deductible gift recipient under Subdivision 30-BA of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1997. 

Not only will the Grace Cossington Smith Gallery benefit our internal community, it will provide us with an avenue to reach out to the wider community. Artworks donated through bequests in favour of the Abbotsleigh Foundation will play a significant role in building the Grace Cossington Smith Gallery art collection.

Any artworks offered to the Gallery will be considered alongside Abbotsleigh’s Collection Policy. Works donated will be cared for and managed according to the highest international museum standards, and will be accessible for research and public enjoyment.

For information about donating works of art or making a bequest please contact or
