Fundraising appeals

We run targeted appeals to purchase works for the Museum’s Collection, or realise an exhibition or artist’s project. Through these appeals, our magnificent friends and supporters make a lasting impact on our work. Recent acquisitions include Henry Nelson O’Neil’s painting A Mother Depositing Her Child at the Foundling Hospital in Paris, and a font from the Foundling Hospital chapel, now on display in our Introductory Gallery.
