Support Us

Somerset House is a centre for contemporary culture and home to a thriving creative community. We combine our heritage with a commitment to championing pioneering artistic practice.

There are a variety of ways to engage with Somerset House as a supporter or corporate partner. 

Realising our potential and our ambitions as a new kind of artistic centre for the 21st century – a place where art is imagined, made and presented – relies on working in partnership with a broad range of supporters, donors and sponsors.

As an entirely self-funded charity receiving no regular public funding, our supporters help us to:

  • Preserve and renew one of the capital’s most iconic historic buildings, welcoming more than 3 million visitors each year.
  • Nurture emerging artists of all ages, providing urgently needed studio space, bursaries and commissions.
  • Present an innovative cultural programme, giving audiences opportunities to discover the people and ideas behind the creative process.
  • Develop young people’s creative skills through an expanded learning programme.

Your support will ensure that we continue to be a place that is open to all and where art is imagined, developed, made and presented.
