Trusts & Foundations

Donations and grants from charitable trusts are a vital source of income for the Holburne Museum. The support we have received from trusts over the years has helped us develop innovative new areas of work, and also provided funds to ensure we can continue to run our essential core services.

At the moment, we are seeking support for our learning and community programme, our exhibitions and exciting new artist commissions and towards core funding such as salaries and annual building maintenance - in this current economic climate core funding support is more essential than ever before.

Our vision
We know from our current work that enjoyment and engagement in art can change people’s lives.

Our aim is to encourage this enjoyment by:

  • caring for, understanding, enhancing, displaying and interpreting our collection, our building and our unrivalled site
  • reaching as wide a public as possible by providing a welcoming and intimate experience of the arts for people of all ages and abilities
  • staging exhibitions, events and educational activities of outstanding quality and imagination
  • being confident, adventurous and innovative.

If you are a representative of a trust or foundation and would like to know more about any aspect of our work, please contact our Head of Development on 01225 388564.
