Patrons’ Circle

Becoming a De Morgan Patron is a rewarding and engaging way to support the Foundation and the De Morgan Collection. De Morgan Patrons are a dedicated group of enthusiasts who provide valuable support while enjoying a closer connection to the Foundation.

Patrons play a vital role in allowing us to function as an independent charity. Donations support the care, conservation, and display of the collection, as well as funding new acquisitions, and help us to stage exhibitions and expand access for visitors in the UK and worldwide, now and in
the years to come.

We are incredibly grateful for the loyalty and support provided by all our Patrons, who are an important part of the De Morgan family.


In recognition of their significant support, Patrons are invited to enjoy a number of more intimate events and activities, tailored to individual interests.  These include:

  • a personal welcome and an invitation to a Curator-led, private behind-the-scenes visit to the Foundation’s art store which houses the archives and the Evelyn De Morgan drawings collection
  • invitations to De Morgan private views and opening receptions
  • invitations to our annual private drinks reception with the Director of the De Morgan Museum and De Morgan Foundation Trustees
  • A quarterly news update on the De Morgan Collection and the Foundation’s activities
  • Access to exclusive specialist talks from the Director of the De Morgan Museum and others
  • The opportunity to ‘adopt’ a specific artwork to ensure its long-term care, conservation and public display, to be acknowledged in the collection catalogue, in the annual report, and near the artwork itself (where possible).
  • The opportunity to help the Foundation with new acquisitions to the Collection, with conservation work, and with support for temporary exhibitions, touring exhibitions, and educational projects by the Foundation.
  • Subject to agreement, we’ll recognise your support on our website and in the De Morgan Foundation annual report.

Patrons make a suggested annual donation of £500.
