Other ways to support the RA

The Royal Academy relies on the generosity of our Friends, Patrons and supporters to continue to offer excellence in the visual arts. There are many ways that you can help support us. The Royal Academy of Arts is a registered charity and all funds raised help us to promote the creation, appreciation and debate of the visual arts.

RA Patrons



Our Patrons play a vital role in the success and growth of the Royal Academy of Arts as a dynamic and independent arts institution. Patrons support all of the activities of the Academy, from our world class exhibition programme and historic collection of British art, to the Royal Academy Schools and our public education programme. Patrons can support us at several levels and choose from a number of groups, depending on their particular interests.
