Clore Learning Spaces


The Clore Duffield Foundation has funded more than 50 museum, gallery, heritage and performing arts learning spaces across the UK since 2000.  These range from £2.5m Clore Learning Centres in national museums, to donations of less than £50,000 to fund small Clore Studios with local authority museums.

We have detailed guidance available and applicants are advised not to submit applications to us without first reading our Main Grants pages and Space for Learning publication.
