Ben Uri, registered charity 280389, needs your help. We use art differently and change and enrich lives as a result.
Please support our work as we receive no public or guaranteed funding.
We are the only UK museum that champions immigrant artists, particularly those settling in our great country in search of freedom and artistic freedom. The tragedy of Ukraine highlights the need for our Research Unit to record the immigrant contribution to British Art.
We are the only UK museum that has elevated our pioneering Art & Mental Health programmes to core with equal status and focus to our Research Unit recoding the Jewish and immigrant contribution to British art since 1900 and the traditional museum offer.
We are proud of our digital transformation, launched pre-Covid in 2018, as the first full scale virtual museum supported by our gallery in St. John’s Wood in North West London. Our growing impact and global engagement is achieved across benuri.org and numerous other digital platforms.
Thank you very much for your support as together we are stronger and able to change and enrich peoples’ lives.
Why Ben Uri needs your donation
We receive no public funding and have no guaranteed income sources such as an endowment, yet we remain innovative, purposeful and ambitious in delivering distinctive, meaningful public benefit.
Three good Causes to support for many more good reasons
If you are interested in establishing, recording and sharing the rich cultural contribution made to this country by Jewish and immigrant communities to British visual culture — and in enhancing yet further the Ben Uri Collections — please support the Ben Uri Research Unit.
If you are interested in establishing clinical research and evaluation of how — and most importantly why — engaging with the visual arts through discussion and activities improves the quality of life and cognitive abilities of older people living in social isolation, and or with dementia, please support the Ben Uri Arts and Health Institute.
If you are interested in furthering this museum's digital outreach, as opposed to contributing to the capital costs or annual running expenses of a building, please support Ben Uri Digital.

The scheme is easy for a business to set up and costs are low; you will probably be able to adapt your existing payroll system to operate the scheme.
