As a registered charity, trusts and foundations provide vital funds to support our charitable mission to encourage an appreciation and understanding of contemporary art by a wide audience and donating works by important and new artists to museums and public galleries across the UK.

“The Contemporary Art Society has played an invaluable role in championing visual art all over Britain. Now more than ever, at a time of recession and so many anxieties about the future, its crucial contribution to our culture deserves to be applauded and cherished.” – Richard Cork, art critic and curator
