DONATIONS

A significant proportion of the Art Collections at Trinity College Dublin has been donated. This is a tradition begun in the 18th century and which continues to the present day.

At Trinity, we celebrate creativity, the artist and the donor, who are often one in the same person. Many donations also come from our former students. As alumni, they seek to honour the University by sharing work evoking how they were inspired by individuals and ideas during their time here.

We are hugely appreciative of the ongoing support of all our patrons in deepening the scope of our historic collections while simultaneously striving forth in the contemporary.
