What will Arts for Life achieve?
Arts for Life will ensure GPAC remains a Centre where our children first experience the performing arts; a Centre which nurtures local emerging artists; and a Centre where both Australian and the world's finest artists continue to perform on our stages.
Our invaluable community organisations can never be taken for granted. With only 25% of our annual income generated from government sources, additional income through Arts for Life will give the Centre the opportunity to confidently plan and build the artistic programs.
• Support for the development of emerging artists, education programs and new cultural activities across the Arts Precinct
• Increased access for schools, community groups, organisations, and independent producers wishing to present performances at GPAC
• A greater number of performances by leading Australian and international artists across the performing arts
How to show your support
Arts for Life aims to raise $10 million to be built up over 10 years.
There are three principle ways to make a donation to the Fund:
1. A Bequest
If, once you have remembered your family, you also have the capacity to invest in your community then a bequest - a provision in your will - is the perfect legacy to acknowledge the pleasure you have received from your involvement with GPAC over the years. Such a bequest would normally take the form of a nominated dollar amount or as a percentage of your estate. This is a very personal decision and should only be made after discussion with those assisting you with the drafting of your will.
2. A once-off significant donation
Once-off significant donations could be in cash, a gift of shares, proceeds from a life insurance policy or a realisable asset. These significant donations could also be made as a bequest.
3. Annual giving
Every donation received assists GPAC in the delivery of its annual artistic program. All donations over $2 are tax deductible as GPAC is registered as a charitable organisation and endorsed for Charity Tax Concessions. The GPAC Endowment Fund is also registered as a deductible gift recipient (DGR).
