The Art Fund
The Art Fund is Britain's leading independent art charity. Formed in 1903, it is committed to the goal of enriching and preserving the public collections of art in museums, galleries and historic properties throughout the UK. The Fund gives grants towards the purchase of works of art of all kinds and periods, and distributes the works of art it receives as gifts or bequests.
The Fund has more than 85,000 members, and in 2001 offered £5.8 million in grants to museums and galleries across the country.
