Government funding available to the arts and culture sector in Australia is gradually being reduced in favour of what are perceived as more urgent needs.
If you are someone who has personally derived pleasure or inspiration from a cultural experience or seen the joy on the face of a child introduced to music, theatre or dance for the first time, maybe you could help to fill the funding gap.
Next time you are talking to your lawyer, accountant or financial adviser why not ask about making a charitable bequest. A codicil written in consultation with your professional adviser may be a cost-effective way of leaving a gift.
Naturally you will want to look after your dependants in the event of your death but, by remembering an organisation such as Arts Narrogin with even a small bequest, could ensure that someone else, sometime in the future will have their life enriched by the love of the arts.
