Thank you to every individual, company and organisation that supports Turner Contemporary 

"Perhaps the sharpest and most dramatic example [of cultural regeneration] that I have come across lies on the East Kent coast, where something quite magical has taken place."
Sir Peter Bazalgette, Arts Council Chair

"Whenever I visit Turner Contemporary,  it is full of people, it's clearly a very much-loved place. The gallery is  geared to work with contemporary art which ensures they get the best out of us artists."
Jeremy Deller, Artist

"I never imagined that my family and grandchildren would have the opportunity to walk into a local gallery to view world-class art. Now they do."
Local resident and visitor

Make a donation

I would like Turner Contemporary to claim Gift Aid on my donation. I confirm that I have paid or will pay an amount of Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax for the current tax year (6 April to 5 April) that is at least equal to the amount of tax that all the charities and Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASCs) that I donate to will reclaim on my gifts for the current tax year. I understand that other taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not qualify. I understand the Turner Contemporary will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I have given.

Remember to Gift Aid it

Donating through Gift Aid means we can claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give and, it won’t cost you any extra.

Every donation you make to Turner Contemporary (including donations in our on-site donation boxes) could be worth even more if you Gift Aid it, boosting the value of your donation by 25p for every £1 donated. This works by adding the tax that you have already paid on the amount to your donation  - meaning that it doesn't cost you a penny! 

How Gift Aid works

You just need to give us your permission by signing a Gift Aid declaration form allowing us to claim tax back on your donation. It also means that we can claim tax back on any donation that you have given to us in the last four years.

Am I eligible for Gift Aid?

You are eligible if you are a UK tax payer.
