When you become a Patron of the Arts Foundation, you make these moments possible. Over the past 17 years, we have witnessed the transformational power that Patron's support can have on New Zealand arts, artists, and society. We hope that it has been transformational for our Patrons too.
Patrons of the Arts Foundation make annual, five yearly or significant one off donations. This is the most important support the Arts Foundation receives. Patron donations are used to fund awards to artists. As a Patron you are also reaching the next generation of artists through our schools programme, and supporting hundreds of arts projects via our crowdfunding website, Boosted.
Our Patrons are our closest friends, like family. When you join we send you our annual publication Applause, make sure you have the opportunity to select the best seats at the Arts and Icon Awards, recognise you in Applause and on our website (unless you want to remain anonymous), send you a monthly Patron only email and invite you to the AGM where you have voting rights.
Join and share the aspirations of our Founding Patrons, Sir Roderick and Gillian, Lady Deane, Sir Eion and Jan, Lady Edgar, Dame Jenny Gibbs, Fran and Geoff Ricketts, Sir John and Teena, Lady Todd and Sir James Wallace, to ensure that great art is made right here in New Zealand.
Select a Patronage option that suits you.
We hope you will be inspired to give at a level you can afford and in the knowledge that all levels of giving are important to us.
