Your support as a Contributing Member helps us to care for one of the finest collections of manuscripts and books in the world. While your gift provides vital support for conservation, you enjoy all the benefits of regular membership plus invitations to exhibition openings and behind-the-scenes viewings of highlights from the collections. Please consider joining this special group of supporters who are helping us to preserve the Chester Beatty collections for generations to come.
How your donation helps
Your donation helps to fund an annual internship in conservation that gives talented young conservators the opportunity to develop their skills while making a valuable contribution to our conservation programme. Jointly funded by our Contributing Members and The Heritage Council, the internship provides much-needed support for our small conservation team and enables many more works to be conserved each year than would otherwise be possible.
Cost: €500, €50 of which is your annual Membership subscription, with €450 going directly to our Conservation Fund. Note: Since January 2013, donations of €250 or more from all individual donors (both PAYE and Self Assessed) are treated the same with the tax relief being repaid to the charitable organisation in all cases. This means that the Library can greatly increase the value of your Contributing Membership donation by claiming a tax refund of 31%. Simply tick the relevant box on the online donation form and we will do the rest.
Thank you for your support.
“I feel extremely fortunate to be surrounded by colleagues who are caring, knowledgeable, supportive, and who work together as a team. The experiences I have had so far at the Chester Beatty Library far exceed anything I could have hoped for.”
