Why consider leaving a gift to MAGNT
Leaving a gift in your estate to the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory will leave a lasting impact for future generations. MAGNT relies on the generosity of individuals to collect, protect and share Territory stories.
You may choose leave a percentage of your estate, a specific dollar amount, or a residuary bequest. Your gift, of any size, will help MAGNT to protect, collect and share Australia's unique Territory stories without affecting your independence and self-sufficiency today.
Directing your gift in Will
To MAGNT generally
We can make the greatest use of a monetary gift intended for the general purposes of The Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory. This enables MAGNT to direct your gift to where it is most needed at the time, to maximum benefit.
Specific curatorial area or resource department
You may consider specifying a curatorial area, such as Aboriginal art and material culture, or resource department, such as Conservation, to advance an area of specific interest to you. If you are considering restricting your legacy to a particular area we would welcome the opportunity to discuss your plans before you commit them to a Will, to ensure we can meet your wishes.
The Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory can only accept artworks and objects that align with MAGNT's acquisition policy. If you are considering bequeathing an object or work of art or leaving a bequest to a specific project, please contact us to discuss your ideas.
I give to the Board of the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory ABN 22 932 713 682 or its successor,
a) residue of my estate [or]
