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

Since 1984, the Foundation has raised more than six million dollars for TMAG which has been used to support art acquisitions, the creation of award-winning exhibitions, research, conservation of the collection, and hugely popular education programs that fill the galleries with children, students and families. 

Regular donations to the Foundation over $2 are tax deductible and TMAG shows their thanks for your support in many ways, including curator talks and preview tours of exhibitions.  

Your annual Foundation membership fee entitles to you to benefits such access to the TMAG Member's Lounge, and discounts at the Museum Shop and Cafe.

Supporters are also entitled to reciprocal rights at participating museums and art galleries, upon presentation of their valid membership card.
