Become a patron

Our Patrons share our passion for art and our commitment to caring for and growing the national collection for current and future generations to enjoy.  Without such philanthropy the National Galleries of Scotland would not be able to grow the national collection or provide so many ways to engage our visitors.

Over the last 30 years, our Patrons have supported exhibitions, special displays and projects, and have enabled the National Galleries of Scotland to purchase over 1,300 individual items, including paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture and photography to add the national collection.

To become one of our Patrons we ask for a minimum annual donation of £500, and for joint Patrons* a minimum annual donation of £750. Donations can also be made as a gift on behalf of someone else. To join or renew as our Patron please make your donation online, post in the form below or contact the Patrons Office. 

Please join us and help share, shape and secure our vision for the future.
