Donate Now

Donations ensure the IMA remains Queensland’s leading independent forum for art and its discourses. Your support enables us to commission and present new work by Australian and international artists and connect emerging artists with new audiences.

IMA Friends, Explorers and Commissioners receive invitations to a tailored program of after hours events including special previews connected to the programs they support and intimate experiences with art.

Donations of all sizes play a vital role in annual turnover supporting the IMA. Generous individuals, donors, and partners provide more than 25% of the IMA’s annual funding.

Donations over $2 are tax deductible and contributions from $150 are recognised in the following ways.
