The Development and Communications Team of the Courtauld Institute
The last year has been one of change and progress for the Development team. The team works closely with Chairman Nick Ferguson, Director Dr Deborah Swallow and all our colleagues and alumni, and is responsible for raising funds to support the Courtauld Institute’s vision to be the leading centre for the advancement of the history and conservation of art and architecture. Funds raised from individuals, trusts and companies are crucial to the Courtauld’s success.

We are now feeling the benefits of being based back in the heart of the Courtauld. We have welcomed a number of new team members who replace former colleagues; Daniel Batt (Deputy Director of Development), Kate Knight (Head of Individual Giving Programmes) and Sarah Harwood (Development Co-ordinator). The team welcomes visits and enquiries – a team list can be found by clicking on this link .

Courtauld fundraising priorities: How you can help
This year the Courtauld must raise over £800,000 in support of its activities, which reflect the following strategic priorities:
To strengthen and expand the Institute’s role as a research community of the highest calibre;
To attract students with the greatest academic potential regardless of background;
To realise our students’ potential by means of teaching and learning methods of the highest quality;
To care for and develop the libraries and image collections;
To care for and develop the collections and galleries.

Although we have already received many generous donations from individuals, trusts and companies, we continue to seek the remaining support that we need for this financial year. Examples of gifts made include those for our recent and highly successful exhibition André Derain: The London Paintings and support for the libraries and student travel fund. A gift of any size makes a huge difference. If you are interested in helping the Courtauld achieve its goals, please contact Kate Knight (Head of Individuals Giving Programmes) for a gift form or further information on 020 7848 2194 or email
