Individuals, Trusts and Foundations

The support of individuals, trusts and foundations enables us to care for our great works of art and engage millions of people each year, promoting an understanding and love of art.

How your support helps

As a charity we rely on support from individuals, trusts and foundations to help us care for and share the national collection. Donations and grants help to make a wide range of projects possible, including our exhibitions, learning and public programmes, curatorial posts and painting acquisitions. They also enable us to conserve and re-frame paintings, carry out ground-breaking research, and continue to widen access to this world-renowned collection.
