The Kennel Club Arts Foundation

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 ephemera.

The Trustees will be pleased to discuss with potential donors the details of any proposed gift, including its nature and timing. In the first instance please contact Tom Mather, Chairman of the Trustees or Luisa Foster, Secretary to the Trustees on 020 7518 1064 or email the Art Gallery

The Kennel Club Arts Foundation registered Charity number is 1114823.
