Please help support the decorative arts with a donation to be allocated directly to the Society’s 40th Anniversary Fund.

You can make your donation by bank transfer or by cheque – details are on the Donation Form. If you are a UK taxpayer, please consider signing the Gift Aid Declaration on the Donation Form, enabling the Society to claim 25p for every £1 you give us.

The 40th Anniversary Fund gives bursaries to assist decorative arts scholars to further their knowledge and build up their professional contacts by undertaking DAS-related research trips. The Fund also awards grants to museums for collections access projects and to assist with acquisitions. The Trustees will also consider applications for other grants from the Fund that fall within the parameters of the interests of the DAS.

For details of past awardees from the 40th Anniversary Fund look at Award History in the Grants & Bursaries section of this website.
