Funders, Trusts & Foundations

Public funders, trusts and foundations provide the Chester Beatty with essential support. As a national cultural institution, the museum gratefully receives a grant from the Government.

In addition, the Chester Beatty partners with a range of trusts and foundations from all over the world to raise funds for a variety of projects including: conservation, digital initiatives, publications, education and outreach programmes, fellowships and internships, research and exhibitions.

If you are involved with a trust or foundation and think that we might have a project your organisation would be interested in supporting, please contact:
