Art Monthly Supporters

Subscription Donation Fund

Art Monthly Foundation (registered charity 1173171) runs a Subscription Donation Fund (SDF), which allows supporters to provide subscriptions free to readers who would otherwise struggle to afford the magazine.

For example: a donation of £60 will provide a concessionary combined print+digital subscription, while £720 would deliver individual support to an entire cohort at a small alternative art school. Recipients of donated subscriptions include artists at alternative art schools such as AltMFA, Conditions, Open School East and TOMA.

Contributions made to Art Monthly’s SDF will be used to support the provision of free subscriptions, as well as for the Foundation’s other, related charitable purposes, at the discretion of the Foundation’s trustees.

You can make a charitable donation via the button below. Donors will be listed as a supporter on the Art Monthly website, unless you choose to remain anonymous. Thank you for your support!
