Welcome to the V&A Americas Foundation

The V&A Americas Foundation (V&AAF) promotes and supports the work of the V&A in the United Kingdom. We raise vital funds, engage with and build awareness of the museums’ unique collections and deliver an exciting programme of events.


The V&A is a family of art, design and performance museums, where everyone is invited to enjoy the power of creativity.

The V&A houses a permanent collection of over 2.8 million objects that span over 5,000 years of human creativity. The museum holds many of the UK’s national collections and houses some of the greatest resources for the study of architecture, furniture, fashion, photography, sculpture, jewellery, glass, ceramics, book arts, Asian art and design, theatre and performance.
