Cultural Gifts PROGRAM VALUATION
Donation of artwork to cultural institutions under the Australian Government’s Cultural Gifts Program has become a widely accepted and welcomed form of art philanthropy in this country.
- Benefits to donors are numerous and include;
- tax incentives in the form of deductions
- capital gains tax exemptions
- assisting to build and enhance our nation's public collections.

- visual and decorative arts,
- Indigenous arts,
- cultural artefacts,
- social history,
- scientific collections and
- archival material.
