Nearly a quarter of the paintings in the National Gallery's collection have been acquired thanks to these acts of generosity, benefitting generations now and in the future.

Imagine the lasting impression our collection has made on millions of people. If you are inspired by the National Gallery, perhaps you would consider leaving us a gift in your will?

Your gift, no matter how small or large, has the power to make a lasting impact on the work of the National Gallery, supporting our programme of education and conservation, as well as acquisitions.

How legacies have helped

Read about how legacy gifts have helped enhance our collection. An unrestricted bequest is always the most helpful; however, you can direct your legacy to a particular area of our work if you so wish. Every gift helps support the future of your National Gallery.
