The American Foundation for The Courtauld Institute of Art (AFCIA)

Founded in 1985 to promote and support the study of art history and the conservation of works of art – recognizing The Courtauld as the premiere academic and cultural institution for art history with a world-renowned gallery at its heart – and acknowledging the critical contributions of Americans to this work, the AFCIA’s purpose is very much aligned with The Courtauld’s founding vision; a belief in the power of art as central to the human experience.

The AFCIA welcomes contributions to help support the American students who seek out this extraordinary institution for undergraduate and post-graduate studies in all areas of art history, as well as art conservation, museum studies, and the history of costume.


The AFCIA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organisation with an independent Board of Trustees. Gifts to the foundation are tax-deductible to the extent provided by U.S. law.
