What your support can do

The support of our Friends and Patrons is key to helping us share the rich art and stories of the river.

As a Friend or Patron you join a community of our                   greatest champions.

You help us to preserve our outstanding collections for future generations; share the incredible stories that each item can tell via thoughtful displays and inspiring exhibitions; bring world-class art to Henley on Thames through collaborations with national collections, recently including the V&A, British Council and Tate; foster community links both in our immediate vicinity with local schools and community groups, and our international rowing family; and so, so much more.

Thank you.

The Henley 100 Club is a prestigious group of Patrons who enjoy giving something back to Henley and its community.

Through an annual donation, our members’ generosity safeguards the future of the Museum – a recognised centre of excellence for its local cultural heritage and related educational activities. A benefit of being a patron enables members to strengthen social as well as business links within the Henley area.

In recognition of the important commitment to Henley and the Museum our patrons make, there is an acknowledgement board placed in the foyer and the donation also brings other exclusive benefits.
