Our Patrons are so important to us here at the Foundling Museum. Through their generous gifts they help fund all aspects of our work. This includes, but is not limited to: our three annual exhibitions, our work with disadvantaged local children, the conservation of our historic art collection, our exciting music programme and the staff that work tirelessly to keep the Museum running smoothly on a day to day basis.

We hope you will consider joining this very special, generous group of donors. Our Patrons make up the backbone of our supporters and we are very grateful to each and every one of them. Membership starts from £500.
