Benefactors Board © RAI

We are eternally grateful to the benefactors who have supported the work of the Institute since its inception in 1871.

Recent benefactors include the late Elizabeth Colson who was for many years a Fellow of the RAI. She very kindly remembered the Institute in her will with a gift of £10,000. In order to mark her scholarly achievements, we are holding a one day conference in her memory on the 12th October 2017. To find out more about the event click here.
