The Founders’ Circle

The Founders’ Circle was established in 2016 in order to recognise outstanding lifetime philanthropic contributions to The Courtauld. Named in tribute to the three original funders of The Courtauld, benefactors who have supported the institution’s mission at a transformational level are invited to join this society.
