Open House Friends Appeal 

Please help fight the impact of Covid-19 and protect the future of Open House

Open House Appeal4

For three decades Open House has staged an extraordinary festival every September opening the doors of amazing buildings all over London for hundreds of thousands of people to explore and enjoy for free.

However, as society takes important steps to defeat the coronavirus, the charity has been hard hit. Almost all our sources of income have been stopped endangering the future of the festival and the many creative learning programmes we run for children and young people from deprived backgrounds and with special educational needs across the city. 

Open House is not a big organisation. We don’t receive central government grants or statutory funding but nonetheless do amazing things with modest resources. We run a tiny staff team supported by tireless volunteers but making the festival happen every year is a huge undertaking requiring many months of hard work and preparation. 

In the past, we have rarely asked you directly for financial support and have done everything we can to keep Open House free for all, but in this crisis, we now need your help. If you value Open House and want to see it survive as an inclusive and vibrant landmark in London’s cultural calendar, and can afford a small monthly donation, please act now to become an Open House Friend.

We understand that incomes are being hit by the virus and that not everybody is in a position to give to charity at this time, but if just 1% of the people who come to Open House every year gave a small donation each month, it would safeguard the charity and guarantee the future of this amazing free festival for all.

Thank you. By becoming an Open House Friend, you are helping ensure that whatever Covid-19 throws at us, the future of London is open to all.
