Our Patrons programme offers an opportunity to enjoy a close relationship with the Museum and enjoy a deeper engagement with our art and artists.

Patrons are so important to us at the Foundling Museum. Through their generous gifts they help fund all aspects of our work, contributing to exhibitions from conception to realisation; bolstering our core work with artists, musicians and young people; and caring for our exceptional Collection.

We hope you will consider joining this special group of donors. Our Patrons make up the backbone of our supporters and we are very grateful to every one of them. Membership starts from £1,000.
