Endowment Fund

Sarjeant Gallery Endowment Fund

When the Sarjeant Gallery Te Whare o Rehua Whanganui reopens its doors upon Pukenamu Queen’s Park in 2023, it is vital to ensure that not only will we have one of the best gallery buildings in the country, but also that the Sarjeant be able to deliver truly outstanding programmes and exhibitions to its audiences.

An endowment fund is commonly established by galleries to acquire artworks for a permanent collection and to help achieve projects that would otherwise be beyond the scope of normal core funding.

The Sarjeant Gallery Endowment Fund will populate the Sarjeant Gallery with the content that will inspire, engage, educate and entertain the people of Whanganui, the region, New Zealand and ultimately our visitors from all over the world.

The Sarjeant Gallery Endowment Fund will attend to:

  • supporting the acquisition of works
  • creating major exhibitions
  • collection conservation work
  • securing national and international touring shows
  • producing education courses and opportunities
  • supporting partnerships, and knowledge and expertise sharing
