Patron Program


"Patron Program donors provide significant funding for exhibitions, public programs, and a growing and important collection of art for our generation and generations to come. This Program also ensures the Gallery’s ability to continue offering access to exceptional art programs for everyone."

-Kathleen Bartels, Director and Patron Program Member

Join the Vancouver Art Gallery’s Patron Program to deepen your experiences with art today. The Patron Program exists to recognize those individuals who make generous contributions to the Vancouver Art Gallery. Patron Program members enjoy wonderful art experiences throughout the year to enhance their relationship with the visual arts.


Members of the Vancouver Art Gallery’s Patron Program form a group of generous community leaders who provide annual philanthropic support to the Gallery. Suggested levels of giving for the Patron Program are annual gifts of $3,000, $5,000 and $10,000 (for an individual or couple). Benefits of membership are commensurate with the levels of giving.
