Since our founding in 2007, we have nurtured the careers of over 400 practitioners via our international residencies and UK Associates programme. Our unique thematic programming enables the pollination of ideas across cultures, industries and society at large, tackling shared local and global concerns.

As a registered charity we have to raise 100% of our income. The valued generosity of supporters is crucial to our future. Delfina Foundation’s Friends, Gallery Circle and Regional Patron Networks all form our Family of Supporters. Together, they play a key role in our success, developing the next generation of artists and thinkers.

By joining our Family of Supporters, you will be welcomed into an incredible network of individuals who are defining the future of art and culture. Our ‘alumni’ have been collected by world-class museums, exhibited in leading galleries, and participated in major biennales, such as the Venice Biennale, Manifesta and the Gwangju Biennale – to name a few.

Supporters are invited to take part in exclusive activities, which are not restricted to a fixed calendar of events. Instead, we offer flexible opportunities to engage with our work, whether this is over a casual cup of tea with resident artists or through more formal occasions in London, abroad or virtually.

There are a number of ways to get closer to Delfina Foundation through one-off and regular donations. Every gift, no matter the size, makes a big difference. If you would like to explore other ways to support our work, please do get in touch with our Development Coordinator Roshy Afshar.
