Trusts and Foundations
Working closely with British and international foundations, the National Galleries of Scotland has a successful history of collaborations and partnerships to supplement funding for its core activities.
Support from trusts and foundations is crucial in order to implement the Galleries’ learning and access programmes and to promote the long-term care of its collection. Without such support, many of our important recent projects would not have been possible.
Outlined below are a few examples of specific areas of Galleries activity that trusts and foundations can support:
- Capital projects
- Research programmes
- Temporary exhibitions
- The purchase or restoration of works of art
- Educational activities such as outreach projects, specially-tailored guided tours for community groups and practical art workshops
- Publications and Internet initiatives
- Concerts, films, lectures and other public events at the National Galleries of Scotland
