Make a donation

The Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts exists due to the generosity of others. Since Sir Robert and Lady Sainsbury donated their collection to the University, the Centre has continued to be indebted to a wide range of trusts, foundations, individuals and Friends who have supported its activities.

Making a difference

Your donation will help us to:

  • Support the groundbreaking Education Programme, which helps the widest range of visitors to understand and enjoy world art
  • Make new acquisitions to collections and conserve existing works for the future
  • Realise our vision to inspire people, through excellence in the care and display of collections, and temporary exhibitions
  • Safeguard the Centre’s reputation and long-term future

How to make a donation

You can choose to support the Sainsbury Centre through a one off or regular donation.
