Other ways of giving

Corporate support

Through the generosity of our corporate supporters, the National Galleries of Scotland is able to deliver a high-quality exhibition programme that can be enjoyed throughout the year. With corporate support, we can develop innovative education and outreach initiatives, which are vital to the cultural enrichment of our communities.

Each relationship is unique, and we work with our corporate supporters to create tailor-made packages to best suit the needs of the company, stakeholders, employees and customers. Engaging with the National Galleries of Scotland enables you to support cultural and community activity, at the same time as realising key objectives and putting creativity and innovation on the business agenda.

Corporate sponsorship

The National Galleries of Scotland is home to the nation’s world-renowned collection of art, housed in five landmark buildings across three distinct sites in Edinburgh. Special exhibitions, events and educational activities complement the collection, and together they continue to be a source of inspiration and knowledge to visitors of all ages, from far and wide, with more than 2.3 million visitors each year.

Corporate sponsorship focuses your company’s large-scale support on one specific area of our work, such as a single exhibition or educational activity, and allows for significant brand visibility. Our Corporate Support team will work closely with you to design and deliver an effective bespoke package of benefits, tailored specifically to your company’s objectives. 

Corporate membership

We now also offer a corporate membership. Corporate membership is an annual commitment of support including a tailor-made package of benefits such as private tours, learning and development opportunities and behind-the-scenes access.

Robertson Trust case study

The Robertson Trust, a long-time supporter of the work of the National Galleries of Scotland, has provided funding for us to realise this ambitious outreach programme, devised as part of the Scottish National Portrait Gallery refurbishment. 

Reaching out to communities in across Scotland, this challenging and exciting programme took artworks from the collection and used them as inspiration to create

work illustrating key moments in local history and reflecting on contemporary issues. 

With help also from the Hugh Fraser Foundation and further local support, this has been one of the most successful and far-reaching projects at the National Galleries of Scotland, which will have long-lasting impact for us and for those who are inspired by it.
