The Kennel Club Arts Foundation is a guardian of dog art. Its
purpose is to create an archive of important pieces of dog art,
literature and artefacts, which will co-exist alongside the Kennel
Club's current collection. These items will be preserved and made
available for the research, education and enjoyment of all visitors
to the archive.
The Arts Foundation welcomes donations of works of art,
artefacts or books, relating to the dog. The charitable status of
the Foundation will enable UK donors to obtain relief from
Inheritance Tax on the value of a donation given to the Foundation.
Gifts of cash, shares and securities and certain land and
buildings, made by a UK taxpayer during their lifetime may also
qualify for income relief, as well as reducing the value of the
donor's estate on which Inheritance Tax is ultimately paid. All
donations, whether they are monetary or consist of a particular
artefact or work of art, will contribute towards the growth and
preservation of wonderful collection of canine art and
The Trustees will be pleased to discuss with potential donors
the details of any proposed gift, including its nature and timing.
