Supporting the Gallery's Collections

The success of the National Portrait Gallery is dependent on external help from a wide range of funds, trusts, foundations, charities and individuals. Acquiring portraits for the Collection would not be possible without such support, nor would associated work in displaying, understanding and researching the collection. This section of the website focuses on public and charitable sources of support for the collection.
