Support MTG

For 150 years MTG Hawke’s Bay has been at the cultural heart of Hawke’s Bay. The institution has prospered thanks to the generosity and enthusiasm of benefactors who have built and cared for our collections, supported research and public programmes and endowed new buildings and facilities.  Financial support enables us to build on this legacy for future generations and there are many ways you can help, from sponsoring a new exhibition to donating to the collection.
