Here at the Pitt Rivers Museum we want to ensure that our collections remain accessible for future generations to enjoy, and that our education and outreach work continues. In all this, the Museum relies on the generous support of its visitors, other individuals, trusts, foundations and corporations.
By donating to the Pitt Rivers you will be helping to support the work of the Museum, both in its role as caretaker of one of the world's finest collections of ethnography and world archaeology and as an inspirational provider of education and family friendly events. Your contributions will make all the difference.

Support our new programme Origins and Futures
The Origins and Futures programme provides bursaries for Indigenous artists, elders and researchers from communities around the world to study and reconnect with unique cultural objects cared for by the Pitt Rivers Museum. Such visits strengthen traditional Indigenous knowledge and cultural identities whilst giving opportunities for our staff and visitors to learn more about the heritage and significance of the precious objects in the Museum's collections.
Each bursary for a visiting researcher or artist costs £8000. The Museum has launched an appeal to raise at least £24,000 to pay for one artist or researcher to visit each year for three years. The aim of this programme is to safeguard traditional skills, knowledge and art represented in the Pitt Rivers Museum for future generations.
