Legacies

By thinking now of how you might want to support the National Galleries of Scotland you can help us secure the future of our wonderful collections for the next generation of art lovers.

At the National Galleries we hold one of the world's finest collections of Western art. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, supporters and those who leave us a legacy in their Will, we care for, develop and share these collections with as wide a public as possible. This generosity allows us to provide an innovative programme of exhibitions, activities and education.

Legacies are a vital contribution to this ongoing work. Your legacy, whether cash or works of art, will have a lasting impact on the work of the Galleries, ensuring that we can continually improve our collections. This gift will cost you nothing in your lifetime and ensures your place in the rich history of the National Galleries.

Making a Will is the only way to ensure that your affairs are left in order and your family will be provided for after you’re gone. It is also an opportunity to make a contribution to a cause you believe in. If you have been able to enjoy the Galleries throughout your life, please consider leaving us a legacy and help to secure this art for future generations.

Gifts in Memory

We always welcome gifts which are made to celebrate the memory of someone special in your life. See our Gallery of Stars page, as many of our donors have donated a star as their own remembrance of someone special.
