About Thomas Gainsborough

Getting here

Your donations matter

Gainsborough’s House is a registered charity that receives no core public funding. It exists to promote the wider knowledge, appreciation and enjoyment of the art of Thomas Gainsborough for present and future generations.

Without the support of generous individuals and organisations, we would be unable to display our distinguished and growing collections, realise our vibrant exhibition programme, or run our many learning programmes for a diverse array of audiences.

We are a small, dynamic organisation with ambitious plans for the future. We wish to be able to show more of Gainsborough’s masterpieces, provide more opportunities for people to enjoy and appreciate art and social history, and help generate economic success in Sudbury. With your help, we can put Sudbury, and the region of Suffolk, firmly on the global, cultural map. Your support at this time is invaluable.

However you choose to donate, we thank you for helping us raise money for our charity. Please click the ‘Donate now’ button below to make an online donation.

Please contact us mail@gainsborough.org if you would like to make a regular gift donation via Direct Debit.
