The Collections Fund

We all enjoy the Collections of York Art Gallery and want them to be enhanced and refreshed by new acquisitions. In the past 10 years the Friends have contributed over £300,000 and helped with many acquisitions, but:

  • The Gallery has no funds for acquisitions
  • The Friends want to support the Gallery but have nearly exhausted their funds available for acquisitions

The Solution

In September 2016 we launched a Friends’ Collection Fund to generate a regular income to provide continuous support for acquisitions whether through purchase or commission (and nothing else).

Friends of York Art Gallery can make an important contribution to our charitable mission, making quality art accessible to visitors to York and citizens of York, too. For as little as £5 per month paid by monthly standing order, we can make a difference. It will only take 100 subscribing Friends giving an average £10 to raise £1000 every month!

Please help us to help the Gallery continue to develop a world-class collection and reputation by becoming a subscriber to this Fund, and by signing a gift aid declaration if you can.
