Donate works of art

The Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts is very grateful to those who give works of art and other important objects to add to our collection.

Our curators or collections team will happily discuss any potential object donation with you.

Accepting donations

We need to make sure that every acquisition is in line with our collection policy, and that we have the resources to conserve and store each item properly. As a result, it may not always be possible for us to accept donations of objects.

However, if we cannot accommodate your gift, we may be able to suggest an alternative recipient.

More information from ArtFund

Giving works of art, either in a legacy or as a lifetime gift, has just become easier and more tax efficient. Please see ArtFund’s ‘Guide To Giving Art’ for further details.
