The Museum is a charity and our exhibitions, learning programme, public events and conservation are paid for with donations from trusts, foundations and individuals. Every donation, no matter what the size, makes a difference. If you would like to support us today, here’s how your money could help:
£5 could supply one school with art boxes and materials for a visit
£8 could pay for a disadvantaged child from the local community to attend an art workshop
£12 could pay for a day’s conservation of our Collection
£25 could pay for a disadvantaged child from the local community to attend a nursery group for a term
£40 could pay for a child from a London hospital ward to take part in an art project
£60 could pay for our 1920s Broadwood piano to be tuned and used for our free concerts
£200 could fund an artist-led workshop for 28 children, plus their families
