About Art Fund

Art Fund is a British charity that supports museums and galleries. It helps them to buy and display works of art for the nation, funds training and development and promotes hundreds of UK museums and galleries through the National Art Pass, the Art Guide app and more.

Saving heritage

Art Happens is the UK’s first crowdfunding platform designed especially for museums and galleries. Visitors can browse for projects that inspire them and donate, giving museums and galleries the chance to fundraise for individual projects. Chocolate Films produced 3 short films to raise money with Art Happens: to conserve spectacular fashion history at the Museum of London’s Pleasure Gardens; to help the Foundling Museum, London put their first female champions back in the picture; and to bring local hero Samson home to the Museum of Norwich.

Client Testimonials
