Supporting the Chester Beatty


Sir Alfred Chester Beatty made what is widely considered to be the most valuable gift ever given to the Irish nation but did not provide any endowment for its future. Today, the museum is a public charitable trust that increasingly relies on the generosity of visitors, donors, friends and sponsors to help strengthen our mission and develop our activities.


Your support enables us to deliver innovative programmes and events, present world-class exhibitions, conduct new research, and conserve the collections for future generations to enjoy. You can make a donation, become a Friend or Patron, join our Curator’s Circle or partner with us as a Sponsor. No matter how you choose to show your support, your involvement will make a difference.
