Join a circle of portrait lovers
Becoming a Patron of the National Portrait Gallery means joining a community of people impassioned by portraiture, art and history.
Together, we delve into the stories behind our portraits, and ensure they’re available for generations to come.
Your experience as a Patron
As a Patron, you meet the artists and sitters featured in our collection, you’re the first to see our exhibitions, and you spend time with fellow Patrons at awards, exclusive events and curated art trips. You hear stories about the coming together of our Collection, and share insights others will not encounter. There are four tiers of Patronage, each deepening your relationship with us.
Your impact as a Patron
Your support makes it possible for us to share our Collection. Not just to acquire incredible portraits, but to preserve and champion the stories behind them.
Become a Patron
We offer four tiers of Patronage: Bloomsbury Patrons, Reynolds Patrons, Ditchley Patrons and Life Patrons. Each level offers new opportunities to interact with the Gallery and our Collection – you can find out more, and sign up as a Patron, through the pages below.
