Donor Support: Enabling a creative campus

The capital costs of the Glucksman were funded by private philanthropic contributions through a core group of visionary founding donors. Philanthropic giving continues to support the gallery to provide worldclass art for all ages and abilities.

Whether you gift the fantastic benefits of our KIDS CLUB, join up as a MEMBER to explore your own creativity, or invest in a significant donor partnership to enable imaginative learning though art, we will be thrilled to welcome you to our supporter's community

The Glucksman is a registered charity and we are pleased to facilitate tax effective giving in Ireland, the UK or the USA through Cork University Foundation. Download our donor brochure here.

The operational costs of the gallery are funded by University College Cork with additional annual programme funding provided by The Arts Council of Ireland / An Chomhairle Ealaín. The Glucksman generates income through its shop, café, membership scheme and fundraising activities, all of which support the wide range of artistic and educational events on offer at the gallery.

Corporate Engagement
The Glucksman is grateful to its public and private corporate sponsors who support the gallery programme through Corporate Social Responsiblity programmes, direct and in-kind sponsorship.
