D for me
Although it was once funded entirely by the government, the Victoria and Albert Museum was one of the first of Britain’s national museums seeking support from corporations and private donors and to increase income by increasing attendance.

seek support from is the correct usage thus B,C,E are straight out

when you receive support, it is "of"
Now in between A & D,
D for me || to increase, to seek

A) one of the first of Britain’s national museums seeking support from
(B) one of Britain’s first national museums seeking support of
(C) among Britain’s first national museums to seek support of -> seek support of is awkward
(D) among the first of Britain’s national museums to seek support from->
(E) among Britain’s first national museums that have sought the support of

Sentence has Idiom usage issue:
One of the first – is more appropriate over among – eliminate C, D and E

(A) one of the first of Britain’s national museums seeking support from [ Seeking support from – unidiomatic – eliminate it]
(B) one of Britain’s first national museums seeking support of [Hold it]
(C) among Britain’s first national museums to seek support of
(D) among the first of Britain’s national museums to seek support from
(E) among Britain’s first national museums that have sought the support of
