Join a Circle

We are passionate about art and its power to move, inspire and connect with people of all ages and backgrounds across the world. The national collection of Scotland is extraordinary in its quality and breadth, ranging from the Middle Ages to the present day. 

We need your support to help us conserve the collection and to enrich it with new acquisitions. This has to be a collective effort. We believe we know how to achieve this ambitious aim and we believe you can help us. 

Welcome to our Circles. Will you join one and help create a world where art works for everyone?

Your Circle membership

We are asking for philanthropic pledges to join your chosen Circle, through which you will support our aim to help create a world where art works for everyone.

This is more than a pledge to the National Galleries of Scotland. It is a commitment to help us look after and share the 120,000 works in the national collection for the enjoyment of present and future generations.

Your unique relationship

We will show you how your philanthropy is helping to support our mission by bringing you closer to our work and telling you about our shared endeavour through The Art of Giving, our biannual update.

As an expression of our appreciation for your generosity, we would love to recognise your support through public acknowledgement on our website and in our annual review.

Your passion with our vision

We hope you will feel inspired to share your passion with us, so that future generations can live in a more creative and connected society.

Let’s create a world where art works for everyone, together – we hope you will join us on our journey today.
