As a registered charity, the Foundation relies heavily upon the generosity of local donors, without whose support and contributions the collection could not flourish and grow.

If you would like to be part of this worthwhile and rewarding project, we would be delighted to hear from you as there are many ways in which you might be able to help, for example:

  • A general donation which could be enhanced by the use of Gift Aid tax rebate.
  • A specific donation to help us acquire a particular painting or work with accreditation, if suitable and appropriate.
  • Business sponsorship.
  • A legacy in your Will.
  • You may have a suitable work of art that you wish to donate to our collection.

Our current aim is to strengthen the collection with works from the second half of the 20th Century.
