Founded in 1991, Sir John Soane’s Museum Foundation is Soane in America.
Inspired by Soane’s inquisitive spirit, the Foundation convenes a lively forum in the fields of art, architecture, and design, promoting intellectual curiosity, design innovation, and creative ingenuity through a diverse array of initiatives. The Foundation’s Graduate Fellowships, Soane Lecture Series and educational seminars, Soane Travels program, and annual awards, the Soane Honors, have engaged thousands of students, educators, curators, architects, designers, and collectors from all walks of life and across the country (and beyond).
For thirty years, the Foundation has been a critical partner in supporting the Museum’s mission and growth, raising millions of dollars to help conserve its remarkable collections, expand its galleries, sustain and increase its operational capacity, develop educational programs, fund important exhibitions, and preserve the historic fabric of Nos. 12, 13, and 14 Lincoln’s Inn Fields — an architectural and art historical landmark of global importance.
