Be part of our story
We're an independent charity that receives no revenue funding from the government. We rely on the generosity of our Friends, Patrons and supporters to continue our programme of exhibitions, education and debate.
Make your mark on the Royal Academy
As our 250th anniversary approaches, we’ve launched ‘Make Your Mark’ – a public appeal to ensure the next 250 years of the RA.
From adopting a statue on our façade, to naming a seat in our new lecture theatre, you’re invited to make your mark on the Academy.
