The key role of the Foundation is to raise funds and encourage donations to assist the Gallery in acquiring works of art. The Foundation also aims to broaden the knowledge, understanding and appreciation of art in the community and assists with the Gallery’s education program.
The Foundation was formed in 2008 by the Gwen & Edna Jones Foundation with a settlement of $25,000 to a new charitable Trust to replace the old Warrnambool Art Gallery Trust. The old Trust was established in November 1990 by Gwen Jones of ‘The Union’ Woolsthorpe and the Warrnambool City Council.
The funds held in the old Trust Fund were transferred to the Foundation in August 2008.
The Foundation will raise funds from individuals and the corporate sector through donations, cultural gifts, and bequests, to support the growth of the Collection and the Gallery’s educational and outreach program within the Warrnambool region.
Membership of the Foundation represents a unique opportunity for you to secure a close, prominent, rewarding and long-term relationship with the Gallery as it continues to develop.
