Is there a ‘Friends’ scheme that I can join?

From 1951 to 2019 we were fortunate enough to benefit from the generous support of the Friends of Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery (FPCMAG) and we thank them for all their hard work and contributions. At the end of 2019 they closed their membership scheme and were invited to become the first Members of The Box.

Is there a Patron’s Circle at The Box?

We recognise the contribution of our high-level donors and high-profile ambassadors. If you are in a position to consider making a substantial (£1000+) donation to The Box Foundation then please get in touch with us to discuss how we might work together and acknowledge your support.
