RSA Patrons enjoy special access to the art, artists and architects that are part of the Royal Scottish Academy.

The RSA cherishes its independence from funding at national or local government level, relying instead on its endowments, earned income, sponsorship and bequests. Our Patrons will enhance the work we do in supporting emerging and established artists and hosting our year round programme of events and exhibitions.

Patrons have opportunities throughout the year to develop a closer relationship with the Academy. Through a series of bespoke events and behind-the-scenes access, RSA Patrons will build up a deeper knowledge and understanding of our collections, our work and those we support.

In return for a minimum annual donation of £1,000 for single members and £1,750 for joint members you can become part of a special group of supporters playing an important role in the life of the RSA.
