Benefactors’ Scheme

Join our Benefactors’ Scheme

Studio Voltaire relies on our family of Benefactors to play a vital role in sustaining our key activities, from the commissioning of major new exhibitions and events, and the development of our pioneering participatory, learning and offsite programmes, to the provision of much–needed residencies and affordable onsite studios for artists.

Studio Voltaire is a registered charity and part of Arts Council England’s National Portfolio. All of our exhibitions, commissions and participatory projects, as well as 88% of all overheads, are fundraised for in their entirety through the kind patronage of individuals, and funding from charitable trusts and foundations.

You can support Studio Voltaire by joining our family of Benefactors, or directing your support to a specific exhibition, comission or project. 

You will directly contribute to the sustainability, ambition, and future development of one London’s leading independent arts organisations. We develop a close and reciprocal relationship with all of our Benefactors, giving you the opportunity to enjoy a tailored package of benefits whilst enabling Studio Voltaire to flourish and increase the amount of support and opportunities we offer to artists, audiences and our community.
