Never could I have imagined how crucial and exciting this past year as a Courtauld MA student would be for me. Not only do we study art in textbooks, many of which are written by our tutors, but we also actually see the works in person. This is something that I'll always carry with me.

How your gift helps

Philanthropic support now comprises a significant third of the Courtauld's £12.7m annual income and makes a critical difference. Those who support the Courtauld Annual Fund, whatever amount they give, make an important contribution to resources each year because the majority of the funds raised can be spent where the need is greatest. Critically, Annual Fund participation is viewed as a vote of confidence in the work of The Courtauld and encourages new donors to give at every level.
