Art Fund Trustee

Art Fund is the national fundraising charity for art. We believe that art can make you see, think and feel differently, and through our work we help make art more accessible to as many visitors as possible, wherever they are.

We give grants to help museums and galleries acquire works of art for their collections, share them with wide audiences, and support the training and professional development of curators. We are supported by our growing membership of 159,000 through the National Art Pass, as well as the generosity of many trusts, foundations and other individuals.

Art Fund is governed by a Board of trustees whose primary role is to oversee the effective working of the charity.  Trustees also make decisions on grant applications from museums and galleries across the UK for acquisitions of artworks and for a range of other activities including curator and conservation programmes.

We’re currently looking to appoint two new trustees. For these appointments we’re looking for individuals who can help us maintain a high standard of governance and who have significant knowledge, experience and a wide understanding of:

  • 19th and 20th century art, and/or
  • works on paper
