For over 30 years the RSA Friends has played an important role in raising funds to support the work of the RSA, its exhibitions and members. Our Benefactors contribute a donation in addition to their Friends membership to further support the work of the RSA, ensuring we can continue to develop Scotland's creative future delivering a vibrant programme of events and exhibitions.

Redpath Benefactor - Membership plus a donation of £20+

Eardley Benefactor - Membership plus a donation of £100+

Blackadder Benefactor  - Membership plus a donation of £250+
