2017 Annual Appeal

Your donation makes a difference at the NERAM! 

The end of the financial year is approaching and we invite you to make a tax-deductible donation to support key programs and activities here at NERAM. Every donation we receive helps us to provide improved services and facilities to New England artists and the community, look after the artworks in our care and create new educational opportunities.

The New England Regional Art Museum’s ongoing success is made possible by the support that we receive directly from our community through donations, sponsorships and memberships. We believe that the arts, culture and creative industries of our region makes an enormous contribution to the local economy through tourism and improving the quality of life and lifestyle of its residents and that you play an important role in making that possible.

We ask you to support NERAM’s fundraising priorites in 2017

Please make a tax-deductible donation to support these projects…

New dedicated Howard Hinton Gallery

We ask you to support this transformational project which will help to put NERAM on the national tourism map as a ‘must-see’ arts and cultural destination and present our collection in a beautiful new way. The NERAM Building Improvement Fund will initially support the refurbishment of gallery spaces for the curation and installation of a new long-term Howard Hinton Collection destination exhibition providing visitors with a high-impact museum experience with a display of some of the most significant artworks in the collection that uses AV technology to tell the story of Howard Hinton and his generous philanthropy for everyone to enjoy.

After we improve the exhibition spaces, the Building Improvement Fund will support ongoing upgrades to our museum and cafe, address priority WHS and access issues, replace tired infrastructure and equipment, as well as update building services so that we can provide high standard facilities for our visitors, artists, volunteers, members and staff. Our aim is to strategically use the funds raised to support ‘dollar for dollar’ grant applications and to prioritise building projects to maximise the effectiveness of your donation.

Look after our art collections

The ongoing work of looking after the 5000+ artworks in the NERAM collections has received a fabulous boost from the ongoing success of our Adopt-an-Artwork program but there still is much more work to do. The Conservation Fund supports the cleaning and presentation of artworks, purchase of new frames as well as contracting in specialist conservation support and advice when required. This work ensures that the treasures in the NERAM collection are available for display and exhibition when required as well as looking after them for future generations to experience and enjoy.

The future of NERAM

The New England Regional Art Museum is planning for the long haul and by supporting the NERAM Foundation you are making a concrete investment in the future viability of NERAM and its activities. The NERAM Foundation was established to raise money to assist NERAM and its programs through raising donations from the community and investing them to provide an ongoing return with a proportion of the income received being used to support NERAM’s operational budget each year.  These donations provide NERAM with viable long-term financial security and independence, helping us to plan and deliver better exhibitions, programs and events for our community.
