Acknowledging Art Fund support

We rely on the support of our partner museums and galleries to help us promote our work and the National Art Pass. This ensures we can increase our financial support to help your organisation in the future.

Whatever sort of art you‘re interested in, whatever kind of museum or gallery you run, we‘re here to help you transform your ambitions into reality. Last year, 74 museums bought 368 works of art with us – adding new dimensions to their collections and creating inspiring new experiences for visitors.

It‘s only with the help of our 122,000 pass holders that we’re able to continually create exciting art experiences for everyone to enjoy. Every year the pass raises millions of pounds to provide support for 680 museums and galleries across the UK. By helping them to buy great works of art, investing in curatorial training, touring exhibitions and displays, we are able to share more art with more people.

Download our brand guidelines for examples of how to acknowledge us in full on the accompanying gallery label and on all your print and digital materials for all the art we’ve helped buy together. This also applies whenever the work is lent to another museum or exhibition.
