Support the AHS

Each year, the AHS provides a diverse mix of events, publications and prizes, as well as supporting conservation, research and training through bursaries. We also add to the society’s library, available free to the public at London’s Guildhall.

Would you like to support the AHS in this valuable charitable work? We are looking for donors and sponsors to offer financial support to help us in our activities. We have listed below a series of sponsor packages, each of which will contribute to an important aspect of the society's work for a year. We are also most grateful for smaller donations and bequests, as well as donations of books for our library (see here for more details).
