The University of Pretoria (UP) Museums relies on support from all patrons who appreciate the diverse institutional collections and the diversity of art, culture and heritage contents in many of our galleries. The University of Pretoria has been the beneficiary of significant donations and bequests for over 100 years and this essential support has expanded and grown the museum collections. Donations support the curated permanent collections of the institution as well as the museum's contributions to research, training and teaching.

The UP Museums rely on donations, bequests, gifts of all sizes, in-kind donations and services to support its curatorial, conservation and exhibition plans. The donation of money for good causes is critical for us to continue to maintain, care for create new high-quality displays, upgrade for heritage collection and support the expensive conservation needs for the vast South African art collection.

Going forward into 2026 and beyond every donation helps us to care for and safeguard our collections and curate curious and unique exhibitions and provide a truly memorable experience. Increasingly we will be reliant on philanthropy with the aim of raising financial support for an endowment as a means of a long-term investment. You can support the University of Pretoria Museums by donating.
