Ashmolean 330th Birthday Appeal

Gifts to the Ashmolean’s Appeal will be used where they are needed most, supporting the activities at the very heart of the Museum's mission.

Thank you to everyone who has already supported our previous appeals which provide a vital source of income for the Museum. Your gift this year can make a huge difference, providing support for our core activities, from turning on the lights each day, to preserving the 700,000 objects in our care, providing educational activities for 50,000 children and adults each year, and mounting varied and stimulating exhibitions.

You can give a birthday gift online via the University of Oxford Giving Pages, or you can give by post using the Ashmolean Appeal Giving Form


From as little as £5 per month, your gift will allow us to continue to put on thought-provoking temporary displays; to provide workshops, drop-in sessions and talks for children and adults to discover the beauty and importance of our collections; and to care for the artworks which are studied and enjoyed free of charge by so many.
