Members’ Staircase Appeal 2021

Step into The Courtauld’s future

Help us raise £300,000 in support of the Members’ Staircase Appeal and play your part in delivering the new Courtauld Gallery to the world.

In September 2018, we closed our doors and embarked on a journey to transform The Courtauld Gallery.

We have received incredible philanthropic support for the Gallery so far and we are now asking our loyal members to help complete the final phase of the project before we open our Gallery doors once more.

We invite you to make your mark at this pivotal moment and support The Courtauld’s future by giving to the Members’ Staircase Appeal.

Donors to the Members’ Staircase Appeal will have a range of opportunities to be part of the remarkable year ahead.

To say thank you, all donations will be acknowledged on our online donor board. Members giving over £100 will be invited to an exclusive event to see the Gallery before public reopening.

Members giving over £5,000 will be acknowledged on the Members’ Staircase Donor Board. In addition, supporters giving at this level and above will be invited to attend one of our intimate, early access events with our expert curators and the project architect.
