The Holburne is an independent charity and every year we have to fundraise over half a million pounds to support our exhibition and learning programmes, and to help us care for our collection and Grade I listed building. Every donation we receive helps us to achieve our mission of ‘Changing Lives Through Art’.

We are very grateful to everyone who donated to support the Holburne last year in 2019, and would like to extend special thanks to:
