Development Department

The Development department raises money for the V&A. In the financial year 2010/11 we raised £8.01 million for building and renovation projects, exhibitions, acquisitions and education at the Museum.

The department runs the Membership programme on behalf of the Friends of the V&A, and is the point of contact for individuals who wish to support the Museum’s work through donations, joining the Director’s Circle or remembering the V&A in their will.

The department also applies for grants from charitable trusts and foundations and other bodies such as the Heritage Lottery Fund, and raises money from - and build partnerships with - companies through sponsorship and the Corporate Membership scheme. The Development department manages corporate events and private hire and is responsible for organising the Museum’s own events, for example, gallery openings and exhibition private views.

Please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss making a donation.
