Leave a Lasting Impact

Legacy Giving

Can you recall when art has affected you? When it has surprised, moved, or inspired? Can you remember when it has bought laughter, tears, or happiness to those around you? 

Art is at the centre of our shared experience, it is our stories and our communities’ stories, it is grief, and it is hope, it is radical thought and a celebration of tradition.  

By making a bequest to Linden New Art, you will have a significant and lasting impact on your community. Your generous gift will play a vital role in the development of our exhibitions, public programs, and on the lives of contemporary artists. It will ensure that the transformative power of art continues to thrive.

You are our Future

Without the generous support of donors, Linden New Art could not deliver the variety of life enriching outcomes we do. Your support provides stability in the lives of Artists, it develops the voices of our youth, and creates platforms for all of us to talk and to listen. Every donation continues our work and leads to life affirming experiences, and for that I sincerely thank you.
