The USQ Cultural Gifts Program encourages donations of items of cultural significance (i.e. paintings, lithographs, sculptures, ceramics, books, manuscripts, antique furniture, jewellery and collections of items of historical, technological, mechanical, scientific and anthropological significance). The Program is administered in accordance with the gift provisions of the income tax law.
Through the USQ Cultural Gifts Program, you can also ensure the preservation and enjoyment of artworks and artefacts by adding to the:
- USQ Art Collection which features over 700 works of art including pieces from renowned Australian artists
- USQ Historical Archives which includes donated manuscripts, historical documents, libraries, personal papers, portraits and photographs, medals, scientific collections, mechanical and technological items, audio-visual material, USQ branded clothing and marketing material, newspaper clippings and study materials.
The University also accepts cultural gifts which can be sold, with the proceeds going into the USQ Student Endowment Fund.
