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.

A gift in your will

You may not have thought of including a gift to a museum in your will, but the V&A is a charity and legacies form an important source of funding for our work. It is not just the great collectors and the wealthy who leave legacies to the V&A. Legacies of all sizes, large and small, make a real difference to what we can do and your support can help ensure that future generations enjoy the V&A as much as you have.
