Delfina Foundation

How we are funded

How we are funded and where our funding goes

Delfina Foundation is an independent, non-profit and non-political arts organisation with charitable status, governed by a Board of Trustees and supported by strategic advisors.

It is not a grant-making foundation.

Our founder Delfina Entrecanales CBE generously provides our space rent-free. 40% of our annual budget, which represents a majority of our operational costs, are supported by our Board of Trustees. Our ambitious programme of international residencies and public presentations is made possible by our family of individual supporters, foundations, public funding and partnerships. To see a list of our current and previous partners please click here.

Support from institutions and individuals is essential to allow us to continue in our mission. Please consider joining our family. Scroll down, or click here to find out how to get involved.

Delfina Foundation is registered as UK charity 1118409.

How To Get Involved

Support our work

Delfina Foundation welcomes support from both institutions and individuals. Your contribution is vital to continue and expand our work facilitating artistic exchange and developing creative practice through our residencies and public programmes.

Every contribution helps. Whilst there is no minimum donation, we ask supporters to consider gifts equivalent to residency costs. £35 provides a seven-day travel pass for a resident, £500 contributes to an event in our dynamic public programme, £1000 provides a resident’s international travel allowance, £2500 provides a resident’s food allowance. We are happy to discuss larger gifts to fully sponsor a residency or public programme.

If you would like to support our work please do get in touch so we can discuss the possibilities for collaborating.
