Support us


Your donations are vitally important to all of the work we carry out.

Donations fund education, conservation and research project and help preserve Leeds Museums and Galleries collections, sites and knowledge for future generations.

How to donate

We will soon be accepting online donations through this page. Donations can still be made over the phone, in person or by post to any of our nine sites.

Gifts & Legacies

If your object is archival, contact the West Yorkshire Archive Service.

If you have an object or collection that you would like to give to Leeds Museums and Galleries, please send us an email with as much information about your object or collection as possible. One of our Curators will then contact you to discuss the donation further.


Corporate sponsorship

We offer partnerships in which we create actual value for your business, as well as good will. Because we have special exhibitions, a wide ranging programme of tailored events and very unique venues, we can offer exceptional partnership opportunities for our business partners.

To find out more, please contact our Partnerships Coordinator:


Our supporters

We are fortunate to be directly supported by a number of individual membership charitable organisations.

These groups support us by funding object and art purchases, conservation projects and special exhibitions, and it was the collections built up by the members of the Leeds Philosophical and Literary Society (LPLS) in the 19th century that became the core of the present Leeds collections.
