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.
