Supporting museums

Art Fund supports the vital work of museums and galleries across the UK.

We give grants to help museums acquire and share works of art, support the professional development of curators, and inspire and engage new audiences.

COVID-19: During this hugely challenging time we're continuing to do all we can to support museums and galleries across the UK.

How we work

Art Fund invests in the future of museums

Our grants range from hundreds of pounds, to hundreds of thousands. But our support goes beyond funding.

As a champion for the UK's museums and galleries, we advocate for the sector in a number of ways, from lobbying government to running public appeals. Everything we do is driven by a commitment to encouraging more people to see more art.
