You can make a difference.

Our success depends on support from our community, our friends and our neighbours. So, how can you help?

The Art Gallery of Bancroft is a not-for-profit Gallery which wouldn't exist without the generosity of time and energy from our volunteers.
We receive no government funding, so volunteers truly are the lifeblood of the Gallery. Our Volunteer Committee meets for a couple of hours on the third Monday each month.
