Donate to the Masterpiece Cultural Fund
Masterpiece is dedicated to supporting our Cultural Partners and as such is offering unlimited, free access to all artworks, conversations and content during Masterpiece Online at this year. In return, we ask that you consider donating to the Masterpiece Cultural Fund to support museums in the UK, US and Asia, which have been impacted by forced closures.

This year the proceeds will be shared equally among all those cultural institutions that are offering their expertise to Masterpiece Online, via our Talks Programme and Editorial. Masterpiece is pledging to donate an additional 25% of the total raised by 31 July.
