We would be delighted to discuss  the ways in which you could support the British Library. 

Please email or contact Emily Anstead, Head of Trusts & Foundations on: or +44(0)20 7412 7155

This is an exciting time to join us as we work towards our vision for the future. Living Knowledge aims to make us more open, creative and innovative than ever before and we have a range of opportunities to enable this across custodianship, research, cultural events and exhibitions, learning, business support and international partnerships.

The trusts and foundations with whom we collaborate will have the chance to:

  • Support the preservation of some of the world’s most significant items, making them accessible for everyone to enjoy.
  • Shape cultural and learning programmes that will inspire and engage millions of people across the UK and around the world.
  • Help extend our reach nationally, to connect with diverse audiences around the country.

Current projects include raising funds to preserve the nation’s sound heritage, commissioning an exciting and varied programme of exhibitions, and producing learning activities for audiences who have not traditionally been able to access arts and heritage.
