Support the Collection

Donate Works of Art

Developing a relevant and stimulating collection in concert with the needs of the University of Alberta and the communities it serves requires extensive resources. In addition to ongoing support provided by the University of Alberta, Museums and Collections Services, the administrative support unit for the University of Alberta Museums, receives funds from many public and private granting agencies and accepts both financial donations and gifts-in-kind.

  • The University of Alberta Art Collection Acquisition Committee assesses gifts-in-kind, such as donations of works of art, and approves acquisitions that enhance the strength of the collection.
  • As a registered charity, the University of Alberta provides income tax receipts for donations.
  • The University of Alberta Museums is designated as a Category A institution by the Department of Canadian Heritage and is therefore eligible to acquire certified cultural property. As appropriate, applications for certification as cultural property for income tax purposes will be submitted to the Canadian Cultural Property Export Review Board.


To donate works of art, please contact Jim Corrigan, Curator, University of Alberta Art Collection at 780.492.0779.
