Following the new guidance issued by the government, Modern Art Oxford will be closed from Wednesday 23 December, until further notice. We look forward to welcoming you back to the gallery as soon as we can.

All our members form part of a lively community of like-minded individuals who share a belief in the transformative power of visual art.

Commissioning Circle members primarily support the creation of new work at Modern Art Oxford whilst also enabling a broader programme of activity to be delivered. They enjoy the same benefits as Director’s Circle members, plus invitations to exclusive lunches with exhibiting artists as they install their work.

If you would like to speak to us before making your gift, we would be delighted to discuss the programme further.

For more information, please contact Maria Moorwood, Head of Development at or call 01865 813223.

£5,000 per couple
£750 in benefits plus a £4,250 voluntary donation

Please Note

All Patron’s, Director’s Circle, and Commissioning Circle subscription fees comprise a benefit value (the actual cost of the events provided) and an additional donation component. In accordance with HM Revenue & Customs regulation, membership to the schemes can be purchased for the benefit value price alone, however, individuals are strongly encouraged to make the annual philanthropic donation which (eligibility permitting) will qualify for Gift Aid and increase the value of the donation by 25%. Modern Art Oxford will submit appropriate claims to HM Revenue & Customs.


When you make a donation to Modern Art Oxford, we collect and store your personal data which we will use to send you relevant invitations, notifications and updates on our activities. Modern Art Oxford may hold payment and Gift Aid information you have provided for up to seven years, in line with industry financial standards. If ever a supplier of Modern Art Oxford runs their operations outside of the European Economic Area (such as CAF America or the Advanced database help desk), we will only use reputable service providers. We will only share your details with another individual with your prior agreement, and we will never sell your personal details to a third party.

Retention of information:

If you decide to stop supporting Modern Art Oxford, we will keep some basic information so that we don’t send you unwanted materials in the future, or duplicate information. We are required to keep details of your financial support by our auditor for seven years.
