Leave a Gift in your Will to The Ruskin

What a legacy can help us to achieve

  • Conserve our unique collections so that they can be enjoyed for hundreds of years to come
  • Develop exhibitions which inspire, delight and provoke ideas
  • Connect with people around the world through digitisation of the Collection, digital exhibitions and online events
  • Enhance knowledge through interdisciplinary research, teaching and engagement
  • Keep the doors of The Ruskin open for everyone to enjoy

A legacy gift to The Ruskin allows us to continue our work, which is why we are asking you to remember The Ruskin in your Will.

All our legators will receive our Annual Report each year and invitations to private views of the Collection.
