Bold creativity, inspired giving, unique experiences.

The Govett-Brewster Foundation is a forward-thinking, inspired group of supporters and investors who are committed to supporting the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery | Len Lye Centre, contemporary art and sharing unique art-driven experiences.

The Foundation is the lead philanthropic partner of the Govett-Brewster Art Gallery | Len Lye Centre. We make a significant and ongoing contribution to the Gallery, its collections and its programmes, building on the legacies of founding patron Monica Brewster, the collection gift of our extraordinary New Zealand artist, Len Lye, and the more recent investment by the Todd Family and Todd Energy, to enable the stunning Len Lye Centre to be created in 2015.

We support the Govett-Brewster to bring its mission of expanding the possible vibrantly alive!

Together with the Gallery and a range of business and private partners, we deliver a range of art experiences like no other, giving our members, partners and donors distinctive and memorable connections to the best of contemporary art, locally and internationally.
