Throughout its history, The Fitzwilliam Museum has been dependent upon the generosity of its supporters.  Like the buildings which house them, the collections have grown thanks to gifts, bequests and grants from external sources, both private and public.  The Director is always happy to hear from potential donors and benefactors. He and his colleagues will be pleased to advise on tax-efficient donations of works of art as well as financial contributions, including legacies and the donation of shares and securities.   All gifts and bequests are acknowledged; donors’ names are displayed alongside works of art they have given and in galleries they have either built or refurbished.  There are a number of naming opportunities for major gifts.

For further information or to discuss giving opportunities, please contact the Development Office via or +44 (0)1223 332 921 or
