The 2023 Courtauld Fund Challenge Week launches

23 Mar 2023

The Courtauld Fund Challenge Week, 23 – 29 March 2023 

This week, we are calling on you, The Courtauld’s incredible global community, to collectively help us raise a total of £40,000! Donations to our #CourtauldChallenge campaign are being generously match-funded by the Courtauld Fund Leaders – a group of extraordinary philanthropists comprising of Courtauld alumni and members. This means, together, we can raise £80,000 for critical areas of need across The Courtauld, so every pound, dollar, and euro really does count!

Give today and your donation will be doubled 
Every donation made up to midnight on 29 March 2023 will be doubled and go towards supporting vital areas of need across The Courtauld:

Supporting our students 
Navigating the current cost of living crisis has had a considerable impact on the emotional and financial wellbeing of many of our students, particularly those who joined The Courtauld from lower socio-economic backgrounds.

We need your help to provide more students with financial aid via the Hardship Fund than ever before and develop crucial wellbeing and counselling programmes to support mental health.

Donate now and help our students excel in their studies and reach their full potential

Safeguarding The Courtauld’s collection 
Our world-renowned ‘collection of collections’ is a treasure trove of paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture, and decorative arts spanning the medieval period to the present day including world-famous Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings by the likes of Cézanne, Degas, Monet, Renoir, and Van Gogh.

We need your help to ensure The Courtauld’s collection continues to be cared for by world-leading experts with access to the latest in conservation techniques and state-of-the-art equipment. Your support will also help maintain the right environmental conditions in our galleries, essential for our works to survive so that future generations can learn and enjoy some of the world’s greatest works of art.

Donate now and help care for one of the world’s finest art collections for future generations to enjoy

Fostering academic excellence 
With your help we can continue to offer world-leading teaching and research in art history, conservation and curating and maintain our extensive libraries and other valuable learning resources.

Help us attract the brightest minds to study at The Courtauld and challenge our understanding of art and its impact on the world.

Donate now and help shape how we understand art and its histories

Providing careers guidance and mentoring 
We need your help to deliver critical careers support programmes to our students and recent graduates, including tailored careers advice sessions, valuable skills workshops, and our Alumni-Student Mentoring Programme for students from underrepresented backgrounds.

With your support we can provide the practical tools they need to succeed in their careers and gain access to an influential and inspiring network of alumni professionals.
