Give a non-monetary gift

You can give non-monetary gifts - known as gifts of property - including land, shares, artwork or equipment to further our research.

If you've owned the property for more than a year, making an outright gift of property offers these benefits:

  • you obtain an income tax deduction equal to the property's market value
  • you can elect to spread the deduction over a period of up to five years
  • your gift is exempt from capital gains tax
  • the transfer is not subject to any gift tax and the gift reduces your future taxable value.

Cultural Gifts Program

At QUT we are proud of our Old Government House, Art Museum and the William Robinson Gallery, which have all benefited from gifts through the Cultural Gifts Program.

By making a gift to QUT, you can be proud that your gift is helping develop and preserve Australia's public cultural collections and heritage for the benefit of present and future generations.

The Cultural Gifts Program encourages donations of items of cultural significance, from private collections to public art galleries, museums, libraries and archives. Gifts can range from paintings, books, sculptures, manuscripts and personal papers to jewellery and ceramics - even entire technological, mechanical, scientific or social history collections.

The program is administered in accordance with the gift provisions of the income tax law. The Department of the Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts administers the program with the advice of an expert committee, the Committee on Taxation Incentives for the Arts.

If you have something special to give QUT, we would love to hear from you. Contact our Alumni and Development Office.
