Art Fund helps museums and galleries take their ambitions for their collections and audiences further. With acquisitions funding at its core, our charitable programme also supports the development of curatorial expertise and activities to engage wider audiences.

Legacies make up around 20% of our annual income, with gifts ranging from a few thousand pounds to several million. We also facilitate the gifting of works of art to museums and galleries by collectors during and after their lifetimes. This role underpins our work with legators and donors both through one to one relationship building and marketing strategies to reach our wider audiences.
