Support the museum

The generosity of those who support the museum is vital to its success. As a registered charity, the museum must raise over 30% of its annual operating budget from charitable trusts and foundations, companies and individual donors so that it can fulfil its mission to inspire everyone to understand the value of design. Help us create the most inspiring and engaging Design Museum in the world.
