The Courtauld enjoys close links with the US through its students, alumni and faculty, who are either American or live in the States. This relationship is strengthened by support from US taxpayers based in the UK or US, who contribute to the Annual Fund, scholarships and other areas of our work.

The American Foundation for The Courtauld Institute of Art (a 501 (c) (3) charity) enables US taxpayers who wish to support The Courtauld to make gifts that are tax deductible for US income tax purposes. The Foundation's Chairman is Mr. Marco Grassi and its Executive Director is Susan Marks.
