Why we need your support

On 10 May 2024 the National Gallery turns 200. To celebrate two centuries of bringing people and paintings together, we are launching a year-long festival of art, creativity and imagination known as NG200 – and everyone is invited.

Give today, inspire tomorrow

NG200 is our most ambitious campaign ever, and we need your help to make it happen.

We have until our Bicentenary to raise the final £5.8m needed to enrich lives with art, across the nation and the world. As a charity, we depend on your generosity to expand the ways we connect people with paintings and ensure our building can continue to provide a world-class welcome for all. No matter how large or small, each contribution is vital.

The National Gallery is more than a world-class collection – it is a site of creativity, storytelling and discovery, where great artworks from the past inspire new ideas for the future. If you are able, please consider donating today to play a meaningful part in shaping our next 200 years.

Our thanks to you

We are extremely grateful to everyone who supports NG200 for their commitment to our shared future. If you donate £20 or more today, you will have the rare opportunity for your name to be included as part of a temporary display in our refurbished Gallery from spring 2025.

With Gift Aid, you can add 25% more to your donation at no additional cost to you. If you are a UK taxpayer and choose to Gift Aid your donation, the National Gallery can claim tax back. That means for every £1 you donate, we can claim an extra 25p without costing you a penny. 

If we already have a valid Gift Aid declaration on file for your National Gallery account, you won’t be prompted to complete another when donating on this page. For any queries, contact us on

The National Gallery is an exempt charity, as listed in schedule 3 of the Charities Act 2011.
