The Attingham Trust was founded in 1952 to promote the study of the British country house. In the subsequent years it has upheld this mission while consistently providing unparalleled access to both historic interiors and first-class teaching and now offers at least four courses. Through the high calibre of applicants the Attingham Society and the American Friends of Attingham combine to provide a unilaterally strong international network of curators and conservators who can be found working in many of the major heritage institutions worldwide, as well as academics, architects, art dealers and garden historians.

As is demonstrated in testimonies from alumni the Trust still manages to ensure that no eligible applicant of a course is prevented from attending for financial reasons.

The Attingham Trust now needs to secure its ability to provide scholarships and maintain a healthy general administrative fund. One of the best ways to achieve this is through long-term endowment.

If you would like to make an individual donation or leave a legacy in your Will, we would love to hear from you. Legacies are free of inheritance tax, and are an increasingly popular, tax-effective way of giving. You can also donate towards the Attingham Society scholarship by a standing order, donation or cheque (payable to ‘The Attingham Society’). If you are a UK tax-payer Gift Aid can be claimed on the amount. Forms are available as downloadable PDFs at the bottom of this page alongside an electronic facility if this is a preferred method of payment.

Your help will do much to help future alumni and the Trust.
