Acquisitions and Collections' grants are available for the acquisition and conservation of sculpture and also for cataloguing and display costs. Over recent years we have contributed to the purchase of several important works, including Pedro de Mena’s Virgin of Sorrows (Mater Dolorosa) for the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge. Our support has also enabled galleries such as the Lady Lever Art Gallery, Liverpool and the University of Hull to redisplay of their collections.
The maximum grant available in this category is £20,000. If your organisation is looking for funding support to develop, conserve or redisplay your sculpture collection, please read our guidelines for more information.
