Supporting the Society

The Society is a registered charity and attracts no direct support from any of the major funding bodies like the Arts Council or the Scottish Government. Our only source of funding is the fees paid by our members, sales commission at the Annual Exhibitions and the generous support of a small number of individuals and businesses.

Apart from a paid, part-time Administrator, all the work of the Society is carried out on a voluntary basis by a dedicated team of individuals who make up the Governing Body of the Council.

There are many ways in which an individual or a business can support the work of the Society.
By joining as a member
By becoming a member of our Investors In Art programme
By sponsoring a Prize in an individual or a Company’s name
By making a donation
By advertising in the Annual Exhibition catalogue
By giving in-kind support

Please contact us if you would like to discuss ways in which you might help support the activities of the Society.
