Become A Friend

The Arts Foundation has made it possible for a large number of creative people to achieve things that they wouldn't have achieved otherwise.

Sir Richard Eyre

Given ongoing precarity across the arts and culture sector, there has never been a more urgent time to support artists and creatives.

By becoming a Friend of the Foundation you can directly support the livelihoods and future generation of artists and creatives in the UK. All donations, big and small, go straight to artists as part of our Arts Foundation Futures Awards Fellowship Scheme, with friends enjoying a range of benefits, including invitations to special, one-off artist events and gatherings.

Any amount may be pledged at any time, with 100% of your support going straight to the artists, and anonymity is carefully respected if requested.

We are immensely grateful for all levels of contributions to our fellowship scheme and are delighted to offer a range of benefits in return.

We kindly ask you to consider making a donation on an annual basis, since being able to forward plan helps us enormously. Your friends’ membership and benefits will roll over each year, and we, of course, notify you before the anniversary date of your payment. When becoming a Friend online, please register for GIFT AID by ticking the relevant box. For every £1 given by a UK tax-paying donor, the Arts Foundation will receive an extra 25p from HMRC, at no extra cost to you.

We look forward to welcoming you as a Friend of the Arts Foundation.

If you would like to discuss other, and or, higher-level support options, for example, supporting an award or leaving a legacy for future generations, please do review the information below, and contact us to arrange a call.
