Help us build community connection and engagement through the arts. Make a difference in your community by supporting local cultural vibrancy and creative endeavour.
Northern Rivers Community Gallery (NRCG) programs and activities rely on the generous support of donors and sponsors. We welcome individuals, businesses and philanthropists who wish to support our vision and nurture the gallery as a local cultural resource for Ballina Shire and the broader Northern Rivers community.
NRCG exhibitions and programs promote critical thinking, creative exploration and social cohesion; and ensure all members of our community have access to dynamic artistic and cultural experiences through free or subsidised programs.
You can show your support for the gallery by making a tax-deductible donation, becoming a corporate sponsor or making a cultural gift.
Donations are vital to the continuation of programs and activities at the Northern Rivers Community Gallery (NRCG). These programs simply can’t happen without our donors and funding support.
Make a tangible difference to local cultural life by supporting the gallery through a tax-deductible donation.
The NRCG is endorsed with ‘deductible gift recipient’ status through the Australian Taxation Office and all donations of $2 or more are tax deductible. Make a one-off contribution, or regular monthly, quarterly or annual donations and a tax-deductible receipt will be emailed to you. (ABN 53 929 887 369).
Donors may like to direct their support:
- General donations:
Every little bit helps sustain gallery programs ($2 or more).
Support a quality curated exhibition ($2,000 – $5,000).
Support a specific public program or part of a project, such as 1,000 Words - Arts and Literacy Program or ensure 15 aged care residents can attend a BOLD Sparks Creative Session.
- Visiting Artist Residencies:
Fund two professional artist residencies for up to 12 weeks. The artist will engage with the community to deliver creative experiences, create unique site-specific art and activate outdoor spaces ($5,000).
